Valentine and Bloomsweet with too much small fruits ?
« on: June 02, 2022, 09:40:39 AM »
my luxury problem is, that my pomelos have too much fruit set and in contrary to my satsuma up to now they don' t want to kick off some fruits.
Now my question is still to wait until they throw the too much fruit themselve or better already now thin out the too much fruit by myself.
Valentine bears the first year and bloomsweet the 2nd year.
Thanks for your experience.

I get plenty  fruit from my in ground Valentine Pummelo tree.  The problem with Valentine fruit is that they are just sweet and absolutely zero acid, flat insipid.

They will soon kick off extra fruits.  If there are too many in a month from now, thin them then.
