How To Grow Pomelos

Legend has it that before there was the grapefruit, there was this citrus fruit. I mean I have already shown you how to grow lemons, how to grow tangerines and even how to grow red grapefruit. It is only right then, that we take a look at their older cousin I am talking about how to grow a pomelo tree from seed.

Scientifically known as Citrus Maxima or Citrus Grandis, this citrus fruit has its origins in South East Asia and Malaysia. They are usually round or pear-shaped with white, pink or red flesh. Actually they look like over sized grapefruits, however their rind is thicker and the flesh is often sweeter too. When left to grow outside in your backyard or orchard the tree can grow anywhere from 25 to 50 feet tall.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

When growing pomelos from seeds, you want to make sure that you use seeds fresh from the fruits. However, the seeds need to be cleaned first before you can start planting them in a pot prepared with a mixture of seed starting mix and sand. The pot has to be covered in plastic wrap and then find a window sill that gets full sunlight for it sit on.

Germination should take place anytime from 2 to 8 weeks. Wait about 3 weeks before you considering transplanting the seedlings into 4 inch pots. Fertilizer can also be applied bi weekly after the seedlings are strong enough. Ultimately you are going to have to make the decision on whether to transplant into a larger container or outside in your backyard.
