container. The tree has full-sized fruits.
IF YOU don’t have enough space in your farm or garden, grow your favorite pummelo in a rubberized container or something similar. With a growing medium that is rich in organic matter and well drained, the tree will bear full-sized fruits just like the ones in photo grown at the Teresa Orchard & Nursery in Teresa, Rizal. The other branches are also laden with fruits (not seen).
Grafted or marcot/air-layer trees will bear fruit in two or three years. What’s good about fruit trees in containers is that they are very manageable. They can be kept low by judicious pruning. They can be transferred to a desired location anytime. During typhoons, they could be transferred to a safe place.
If one is in the business of selling fruit trees, you can make good business because container-grown fruit trees fetch a high price, especially if they are laden with fruits
