Melogold Grapefruit

Melogold Grapefruit is a unique, attractive, and vigorous cross of Pummello and Grapefruit. Deliciously combining the qualities of its parents, Melogold bears good crops of large seedless fruit with mild, sweet, pale yellow flesh.

Latin Name: Citrus hybrid
Site and Soil: In spring, summer and fall, keep your potted Citrus in a location with 1/2 day to full sun. In the winter, place your plant in a well-lit room. Potting soil should be coarse, acidic, and well-drained.
Rootstock Description: Flying Dragon is a hardy and very dwarfing rootstock for Citrus that induces very early flowering and fruit procuction. Trees grown on Flying Dragon will rarely exceed 5 ft. in height and will often produce fruit the year they are planted.
Pollination Requirements: Melogold is self-fertile. You can help it set fruit by taking a small brush and moving pollen from flower to flower.
Hardiness: We recommend bringing Melogold Grapefruit to a well-lit and protected location in late fall before hard frosts occur.
Bearing Age: 1-2 years after planting
Size at Maturity: 3-5 ft.
Bloom Time: Winter and spring
Ripening Time: Melogold Grapefruit ripens in winter to early spring.

Pests & Diseases: While outside, Citrus plants will likely not be bothered by insect pests. Be on the lookout for slugs. Indoors, Citrus can have mites and/or aphids. Watch carefully for any problems and treat with an insecticidal soap or wash them off. We have not seen any disease problems on our Citrus plants.
