Starting a new thread for Pomelo growers in Melbourne - I went to photograph the Carters Red Hybrid fruit today put my hand under to support slightly and it just fell into my hand - not cut open as yet but will give it a week as all citrus get a little bit juicier - will post a pic cut later.

Will follow this thread, I grow some here over in Perth. Unsure of the variety but suspect Carters Red, grew them from seed and they are four years old at the moment. Only fruiting Pomello I have at the moment is a general one with light yellow flesh.

Hi Mark

Planning to nurture pomelos as well in Melb when I finally settle down in Vic. Atm I am still in Inland NSW because of work commitments. Maybe, I will gonna start with the easier ones like the hybrid Flicks Yellow. The cold hardy Japanese and Chinese shaddocks are hard to source in OZ atm. Anyway, I will be on the lookout for cold tolerant cv's when i come back to Vic.

Happy gardening :-)

Im not treating the Carters Red any different to my other Citrus - maybe having a flowering Dwarf Nam Roi helped it pollinate this summer - that also has a fruit but not as big. Flicks yellow is a very productive easy to cultivate tree worth growing for its juicy fruits.

Update on whats inside fruit - Sadly wasnt red and could be miss labelled as maybe could be a standard Shaddock - very annoying - also will in future keep on tree alot longer as taste was getting close to grapefruit tart but still better tho.It wasn't dry too.

Hi Mark

I think it still a good effort from you. Probably, you can expose the ripening fruit from more sunlight by pruning any vegetation that are shading the fruits. Or you can tie them aside. Heat will hasten the ripening process as well as it will improve the sugar content of the fruit.

Happy gardening :-)
