Germination of

Citrus paradisi

Red Pomelo Citrus Fruit: Red Grapefruit, Chinese grapefruit, Forbidden fruit

Citrus paradisi

Citrus paradisi seeds should be sown in a well-draining soil mix and covered lightly with soil or sand. Keep the soil consistently moist and warm, ideally around 80�F. Place the container in a bright location, but avoid direct sunlight. Germination should occur in 2-3 weeks.

Some of plants may have very have specific germination requirements that may not be covered in these general instructions. 

Many seeds require pre-treatment before sowing which we try to list here when we can, but this information may not be present here.  Germination times and germination temperatures are to be a guide only.  Many factors can DRASTICALLY affect this.


It's always a good idea to research the specific germination requirements from multiple sources for each plant before attempting to grow them from seed.
