They are very productive in a warm climate and the picture doesn't show how big they really are.

At last I harvested the first fruit of my red magallanes pomelo!
The plant flowered for first time last june, just TWO flowers on the same branch tip.
They both set a fruit but one of them fell down during a typhoon last october.
The one left,  made its way to ripeness and some days ago it fell at my  gentle touch.
The flesh is pink, only one seed is present, very juicy. The  taste is great, a perfect balance of sweet and a hint of  sour, this is indeed a great variety   :)
