[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The pomelo (Citrus maxima )is native to Southeast Asia, and grows wild on river banks in Fiji, Tonga, and Hawaii. It may have been introduced into China around 100 B.C. It is widely cultivated in southern China and especially in central Thailand on the banks of the Tha Chin River; also in Taiwan and southernmost Japan, southern India, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, New Guinea, Tahiti, and the Philippines. It is also grown commercially (on a limited scale for ethnic and specialty grocers) elsewhere, particularly California, Florida, and Israel. Because of this limited production, pomelos typically sell for about 2 dollars a piece in the USA.

Hi Manee,
Very nice and sharp close-up of the pomelo flower. Perfect exposure for the white flowers. Are the flowers fragrant?
Thanks for sharing.
