Fruitscaping™ with Pummelo Trees

Dive into the world of Fruitscaping™ with our Pummelo Trees. Known as the largest of all citrus fruits, pummelos are a fascinating and fruitful addition to your edible landscape.

Pummelo trees are simple to cultivate, requiring full sun and well-drained soil. Their thick, spongy rind encloses a sweet, slightly tangy flesh that is low in acidity, making them a deliciously refreshing treat.

Different Pummelo varieties offer a unique twist on the fruit’s traditional flavor. Whether you prefer to enjoy your pummelo fresh or transformed into marmalades, juices, or salads, these versatile fruits cater to all taste preferences.

Aesthetically, Pummelo trees are equally appealing, displaying lush, green foliage and fragrant flowers. Given their size, they can serve as a striking centerpiece in your landscape, adding a touch of tropical charm to your garden.

Pummelo trees can be shaped into beautiful hedges, or allowed to grow naturally as a stand-alone tree. Despite their size, they also adapt well to container growing, making them ideal for small gardens, patios, or decks.

Immerse yourself in the joy of Fruitscaping™ with our Pummelo Trees. From planting to nurturing, from harvesting to savoring your very own homegrown pummelos, the journey is as rewarding as the fruit is delightful. Embark on your Fruitscaping™ adventure with our Pummelo Trees today.

Shipping Restrictions

Unfortunately, We Cannot Process Orders to California, Hawaii, Alaska, or Internationally:  Please note that due to specific agricultural regulations, we’re unable to ship any plants to the states of California, Hawaii, and Alaska, or outside the United States. Additionally, citrus trees can only be shipped within the state of Florida.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
