Juicy & Heart Shaped, This Citrus Is Easy To Grow 

“You shouldn’t have!” she said as he put the big box in front of her. It was wrapped in festive red paper and tied with an extravagant bow. She ripped open the Valentine’s Day present. It was too big for jewelry, too small for a new car. What was it?

“A box of grapefruit?” she exclaimed.

“No, sweetheart. It’s a box of Valentine Pummelo fruit from the tree I bought at NatureHills.com!”

Quickly grabbing one of the oversized, teardrop-shaped fruits, he took out his pocketknife and sliced it in half. He laid it in front of her so that she could see the distinctive heart shape of the two halves and the bright red flesh, dripping with juice that was making his mouth water. Lifting it to her lips she inhaled its scent. She bit into the fruit and gasped. This might have been the best tasting citrus she’d ever had.

Wiping her mouth with the back of her hand, she leaned in for a kiss. “This is the best Valentine’s Day ever!”

Valentine Pummelo (Citrus maxima hybrid) – sometimes spelled Valentine Pomelo) is a relatively new fruit on the market and we are very proud to offer it to you. The fruit are heavy for their size and ripen around February 14 every year. A cross between a pummelo and a blood orange gives the flesh its deep red color and sweet-tart taste. If you are lucky enough to live where citrus trees flourish, you’ll want to give Valentine a try. We don’t guarantee it will spice up your love life – but we don’t guarantee it won’t either!
