Louis, was the pummelo tree a seedling that you started, or a grafted tree that you purchased
Hello my friend!  ;D
This was a grafted tree i buyed. She suffer a bit from cold weather two years ago but i think she will go on. I harvest this fruit because i was afraid it was too dry if i take too much time doing it, but i'm prepared to get this first fruit with bad quality. I will let it stand some weeks with apples and see if he will get better.

I got a couple of new Zealand lemonade seedlings past the die-off stage.  The seedling in the bottomless tin can is in a 5 gallon bucket with 20 FD seeds in  the ring of dirt around the can.  The pepper plant shown shares a 5 gallon bucket with beets that won't interfere with the pepper plant.  2 more NZL seedlings to go in bottomless cans to share a 5 gallon bucket with beets.  The bottomless food cans have no perched water table to cause root rot while the beets below drink up any excess water.

Louisport, what temperature zone is Fatima (a very famous city) in?  Is it warm enough to plant citrus in the ground.

hello my friend! Yes i'm just 7Km from the famous Fátima Shrine, but they have a bit more cold and frost than our location. We are protected from winds too... the usual lowest temp is 0C or -1C. On colder winters we got -3C and the lowest on record -6,5C, but this is the lowest ever.

I would certainly like to visit Fatima's Shrine to Mary.  I could also see your big citrus collection.
