Why a pomelo tree?
Pomelo trees are very durable, some trees still bear fruit after 200 years. The pomelo is one of the original citrus species from which the rest of cultivated citrus have been hybridized. The pomelo, or in scientific terms Citrus maxima or Citrus grandis, is the largest citrus fruit from the family Rutaceae. Pomelo trees grow 24 inches (61 cm.) per season and can up to 150 years and reach a height of 25 feet (7.6 m.). Under good conditions, a pomelo tree produces up to 100 fruits per year. A fresh pomelo contains a variety vitamins. Pomelo leaves are used for aromatic baths. The essential oil can be extracted from the leaves, peel or seeds of some pomelo species. A full-grown pomelo tree has roots down to a depth of 4 meters, helping to prevent soil erosion and protect watersheds.
