I'm so jealous! I have a Hirado Butan pomelo about that size, in the ground. I had about a dozen fruits on it, but all but one fell off. Then June drop got the last one. My poor tree has had a hard life. It got planted in a bad place, got moved, got chewed down to just above the graft (crazy dog), then got moved again. Maybe next year..
I have a semi-large Valentine pummelo tree planted in the ground. It provides a lot of fruit. The valentine pummelo's taste is OK, but the fruit could use a little more zing to it. The variety is a bit mellow.
The Valentine pummelo that you sent me has grown quite a bit, thanks again. It is in-ground in my greenhouse. No fruit yet but I expect next year will be good now that I have my greenhouse environmental controls set up.
