Please help ID pomelo variety
« on: February 13, 2019, 12:45:11 PM »
I have a large pomelo tree growing in my back yard but no clue what variety.
It most closely resembles 'thong dee' to me from pictures. I forgot to get a picture of the inside of a fruit but I'll post one later.
The fruit is light pink with very thick rind.

Please let me know what you think it is. Thanks.

Chandler is a widely grown pummelo and its flesh is pink.

I had a Hirado Butan that looked very much like that & pink flesh as well.

Hey Guys,
I'm thinking about multigrafting this tree later this year. It has three main branches and I'd be leaving a good portion of it as pomelo.
I wanted to know what kind of citrus grafts are compatible with a pomelo root stock?

I've recently tasted some mineola tangelos, and a blood orange and really enjoyed the taste. Would these be good matches for the pomelo? What about finger limes? My main issue with this tree is it just produces WAY too much for my wife and I, and we have a small lot (under 1/4 acre) and I'd love more variety. (and to practice grafting!)


Thanks.
