About the White Pummelo Grapefruit Tree

The White Pummelo Grapefruit tree is a stunning and productive citrus tree that is sure to add beauty and flavor to any garden. This tree is a hybrid of the Pummelo and White Grapefruit and produces large, juicy fruit with a sweet, delicate flavor that is less bitter than other grapefruit varieties. This large, round fruit is a member of the grapefruit family and is also known as the Chinese grapefruit or shaddock.

The White Pummelo Grapefruit tree has dark green, glossy foliage and produces fragrant white flowers in the spring that give way to large, juicy fruit in the winter. It’s a seasonal bloomer and may bloom up to four times a year.

The fruit of the White Pummelo Grapefruit tree is typically large, with a thick, pale yellow or green rind that is easy to peel. The juicy, seedless flesh can be light pink to deep red in color and has a refreshing texture that is perfect for eating on its own or adding to salads and other dishes.

How to Grow the White Pummelo Grapefruit Tree

One of the benefits of growing a White Pummelo Grapefruit tree is its adaptability to a range of growing conditions. It is relatively cold-tolerant and can be grown in USDA zones 9-11 when planted in the ground. In cooler regions, this grapefruit tree can be grown in large containers to be brought in during the winter months. The tree prefers full sun and well-drained soil but can tolerate a range of soil types and pH levels.

It is a self-pollinating variety, so you will get fruit with just one tree. Plant the White Pummelo in a location that receives plenty of sunlight and provides good drainage. Water the tree deeply once a week and fertilize it every few months with a citrus-specific fertilizer.

Overall, the White Pummelo Grapefruit tree is a beautiful and productive addition to any garden. With its delicious fruit and attractive foliage, it is sure to provide years of enjoyment for both the eyes and the taste buds.
