My Pitomba harvest begins!
« on: May 31, 2022, 03:49:17 PM »
My pitomba harvest has begun! About 2 months from flower to fruit and they are so yummy! Once they start to turn color, they ripen within days

A short video showing off the fruit

That is a large tree, how long has yours been fruiting?

The fruit is really nice looking, reminds me of Fukushu Kumquat

What sort of Ph does Pitomba need? And what fertiliser does one use?

Pitomba is not PH sensitive, in my experience. I use 8.3ph and just fine. It doesn't grow much better with acidified water down to 5.5

It is also not picky about fertilizer, I use slow release now. It also does fine with Hollytone.
