Pomello tree

    7 responses

Tim@Moss Vale starts with ...
At last I have located a flicks yellow pomello tree from Daley's. I live in the southern Highlands of NSW. I have only had the tree a month but it is already shooting. I planted in a Half wine barrel with a mixture of potting mix and cow manure. The container is on wheels and I plan to wrap the tree with hessian in the winter and locate it undercover. The rest of my citrus, orange, lemon grapefruit and mandarin, get the same treatment and seem to survive well. The fruit are a little smaller but still juicy and sweet.
I fertilise in the spring and autumn and add a diluted water mixture of 10% worm juice and 90% water every 2 weeks through the summer. In the hotter times I ensure that regular water is applied and mulch with chopped lucerne about 70mm deep. I take care to keep the main trunk clear. I prune 20% of growth each year to keep them to about 1.8 metres. My new pomello will recieve the same treatment even though it is not on dwarf stock.

Hey Tim what are the characteristics of Flick's Yellow? Have been looking for a superior variety as well.

It's early days for me. I had to look for a plant that would survive frost and a cold climate. My other citrus cope with the hessian wrap and under a covered pergola in the winter. Just hope the pomello does the same.

Phil, it tastes like sweet lemonade. Its not a true Pommelo though and tolerates cooler climates and sweetens up perfectly outside of the tropics. Daley's posted a video about the varieties just a little while ago.

My Flicks Yellow has been hit by fruit flies this year. They are just monsters this year. In a few weeks I should be able to buy a lifetimes worth of fipronil, so they should enjoy life while they can...

A few drops in wild may should do the trick. Folk up north have reported good results with frontline ground up into wild may. I figure the liquid will mix much better with wild may, plus is so much better value for money in the long run. And since the fruit flies are going nowhere, it's a long run solution I'm looking for...
