Pomelo in Bloom

Last year a planted a young pomelo tree. It's a type of citrus, like a dry sweeter grapefruit sort of thing. Some varieties are better than others, but I don't know yet if I got a good one. Time will tell. 

Today I discovered that it's in bloom. Super! I figure I'll thin the fruits to 2 or 3 since the tree is still young. There's about 3 dozen blooms on the tree already with more developing. Looks like I'll be doing quite a bit of fruit removal. Last year I simply removed all the blossoms since I didn't want the tree to fruit at all. 

It's nice to see this tree thriving. I like the idea of adding more variety to the farm inventory.
