Germination of

Citrus sp.

White Pomelo Citrus Fruit: Pomelo, Chinese Grapefruit, Jabong

Citrus sp.

Citrus sp. seeds can be germinated by soaking them in water for 24 hours prior to planting. They should then be sown in well-draining soil and kept in a warm location with plenty of sunlight. Citrus seeds can take several weeks or even months to germinate, so patience is key. Once the seeds have sprouted, they should be kept moist but not overwatered.

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.
