Planting & Care

1. Planting: When planting outdoors, choose a spot in your yard with well-draining soil that receives full to partial sunlight. To plant your pummelo tree, dig a hole that’s twice as wide as its root ball and equally deep. Spread the roots around and then backfill the hole.

You can also keep your Pummelo tree planted in its original pot for up to a year. Repot anytime in a 5-15 gallon pot with drainage holes. Plant in early spring or late winter for best results.

2. Watering:  For optimal growth, ensure your pummelo tree has well-draining soil and water it at least once a week.

3. Fertilizing: To ensure your citrus trees grow well and produce abundant harvests, it's important to fertilize them regularly. Use a citrus fertilizer as per the manufacturer's instructions. 

4. Pruning:  Pruning is not required unless planting in a pot to control growth. Pummelo trees are versatile plants that can be shaped into beautiful hedges or left to grow as stand-alone trees. 

4. Pollination:  Since this variety is self-pollinating, you don't need to plant other pummelo trees, although this can promote more fruit.
