Pummelo Tree - Nam Roi

    4 responses

jeremy48 starts with ...
Hi, I bought the pummelo tree in July and it was in good condition at the beginning with a lot of flowers, but starting from last month, the flowers started to drop and the new leaves are turning yellow. The whole tree looks in bad condition. I tried iron chelate, but it didn't work. Do you have any suggestion? There are a lot of rains this year. Is it related?

Is there any new growth evident since you posted this on the site, a month later?

It looks better now, but the color of the leaves is still not that green, same as the picture posted one month ago. I am not sure if I need to give it more nitrogen.

Citrus tend to be heavy feeders, most of mine get #1 peasant fertiliser (diluted urine and fire ash) regularly, and have a growth burst when they get it. It isn't a bad thing to try with a new citrus in any case, as long as you dont overdo it to the point of fertiliser burn.

Hi jeremy48,

Nam roi is a very tropical pummelo, it requires heat (above 25C) to grow. In winter or cold months leaves will turn yellow, by adding Nitrogen will not help it at all. However, when the weather improved, say in Nov-Jan the plant will grow again and leave will be greener. Each year in July-August it produces many thousand of flowers but 99% will be dropped and it is normal. Depends on the size of your tree, for example, my 5 years old only have 15-25 fruits remain and get mature in Sep-Oct of the following year. There is another way to improve the grow during the winter months by feeding the microbes in the soils by using EM1. Cheers
