Pomelo tree - which type?

    4 responses

Paula at Mt Nebo starts with ...
I would like to plant a pomelo in my small orchard. We live at Mt Nebo, which is about 550m above sea level and often up to 5C cooler than Brisbane. Can anyone tell me what variety might suit up here?

Hi, I know some one in Mt Nebo who had a pomelo, but the fruit was sourish. This is also what happens in Victoria, with the more tropical type pomelos. The tree will grow fine, but the fruit wont be sweet.
There are some suitable for cooler areas
ie Tahitian,(greenish flesh) Flicks, Honnefs(orange flesh). You may consider Oroblanco, a pummelo X grapefruit.
If you search this forum, you will find more info about types.

Hi Paula,

Flicks yellow is easy to grow in your climate, fruit tastes good and plenty but fruit after removing skin is small about the size of orange. I have a Namroi growth well in the green house but I cannot comment until April when it is ready. Cheers

Thanks, this is a great tip. I actually have a ruby red grapefruit that I am going to get rid of because the fruit are really sour and virtually inedible. You wouldn't think being 30km out of Brisbane and 550m up would make such a difference. I'll check out your recommendations.

You might be able to graft over the ruby red grapefruit, some members might have scions (twigs for grafting)of suitable types for you.
These 3 are a little unusual, Tahitian,(greenish flesh) Flicks, Honnefs(orange flesh), ie none are classic pummelos if thats what you are looking for.
