The pomelo is the largest citrus fruit in the world, and occurs naturally in south-east Asia. In nature the tree can grow as big as 10 meters tall, but in a temperate climates the plant should be kept in a pot and moved indoors in winter and therefore stays much smaller. The fruits become yellow when they ripen, and can weigh up to 2 kg. They resemble grapefruits (pomelo x orange hybrid), although a pomelo is sweeter and less bitter. The white pulp is surrounded by a thick peel, and the fruits should be cut open in order to eat them. The plant can flower several times per year, and prefer a sunny warm spot. In winter the Pomelo plant can hibernated at a cooler temperature, but cannot tolerate frost.
