My sister-in-law gave us this pot of pomelo. The first time we took it home, I thought that if we keep it in a pot it might not bloom. Instead the very next week, it was full of flowers. The following week the flower starts to drop and I notice few fruits on the tree. Only one made it. The rest will drop off. Well the first fruit was half the size of a normal pomelo. After a few months later, it bloom again. This time the fruit grew, max, to the size of a tennis ball. Both fruits are very sweet but too small. It must be of good breed.
I don't have much land to plant it on the ground. Anyway it didn't bloom for a long time now. Does any one of you know how or what should I nourish it with to get a bigger fruit even in a pot? My hubby said just leave it as it is. The fruits are for decoration only, not really for eating.
Hope one day I could give it to someone close. Someone who could plant it on the ground and make it bear lovely nice big juicy fruit and I could go and admire it and eat its fruits when ever I like. Thanks for reading and hope you share my passion of gardening.
