About this product
Grown from seed, these saplings are over 1 year old.
Pomelo trees are native to the Far East, specifically Malaysia, Thailand, and southern China, and can be found growing wild on the river banks in the Fiji and Friendly Islands. It is considered a fruit of good luck in China where most households keep some pomelo fruit during the New Year to symbolize bounty throughout the year.
The pomelo tree itself has a compact, low canopy somewhat rounded or umbrella in shape, with evergreen foliage. The leaves are ovate, glossy, and medium green, while spring flowers are showy, aromatic, and white. In fact, the flowers are so fragrant the scent is used in some perfumes. The resulting fruit is borne off the tree in winter, spring, or summer, depending upon the climate.
