Get Sweet and Tangy, Sunset-Hued Fruits
The Hirado Pummelo Tree produces a tasty, less-bitter citrus alternative to grapefruit. These yellow-and-pink fruits are equally attractive on your tree and your breakfast table!
Though little-known in the United States, pummelos are hugely sought after around the world. These tasty fruits are sweet, tart, and moderately juicy like grapefruits, but also offer a denser texture and less acidity. What’s more, the pummelo is slightly larger than a grapefruit.
Originating in Japan over a hundred years ago, the Hirado Pummelo Tree is still the second most widely planted tree in the country. In part, this enduring popularity is because of its compact size, as the tree grows no more than 14 feet tall. The tree is also cold hardy, so it can be planted in climates that drop to temperatures of 15 to 20 degrees in the wintertime. Don’t forget its long fruiting season - from November through March!
If you’re a citrus lover, pummelos are the delicious fruit you’ve been missing in your kitchen and backyard. See why the rest of the world loves them - order your Hirado Pummelo Tree today!
