Photo shows a pomelo grow­ing in the ground that was top­worked with scions of Bearss lime. When the Sar­ian Farm in Teresa, Rizal, ob­tained scions of Bearss lime, they were too big to be grafted on cala­man­darin seedlings.

What to do? The prob­lem was solved by graft­ing on the branches of a Viet­nam pomelo the Bearss lime scions. The photo was taken on Oc­to­ber 3, 2018, ex­actly seven weeks after graft­ing. The grafts are grow­ing very well. No mor­tal­ity.

Bearss Lime orig­i­nally came from Bearss Nurs­ery in Cal­i­for­nia. The fruit is juicy and is usu­ally seed­less.
