Pomelo Update


Some time ago, I posted pics from my pomelo tree. I guess I owe all followers an update on what happened.

Well, although a friend told me to wrap the fruit with a plastic bag or newspaper when it was calamansi lime-sized, I didn’t do it. So then one day when it was grapefruit sized, I saw a happy insect buzzing around and poking into the fruit… literally. I apologize I have no pics of this insect.

Anyway, not long after, the fruit started to ripen, and fell into my hand when I gave it a gentle tug. It was still too small, and not the proper size of a pomelo yet.

We cut it open, and the fruit pulp was still tiny within the thick rind. How did it taste? I don’t know 😦 Memories of that insect put me off!

    1. Ignorance is bliss!
      In my case, a few days after I noticed the insect, there were spots of sticky sap oozing out of the skin where the insect had been. So I think my poor fruit suffered from the visitation.
      Better luck next year for both of us!
