Description: Has a bark condition resembling psoriasis. This condition is apparently characteristic of the New Zealand 'grapefruit', The earliest description of record, given in a New South Wales nursery catalogue of 1820, indicates that the original introduction might have been a Shaddock (pummelo); hence, the possibility exists that Poorman is of Australian origin. A seedy, orange-fleshed fruit that matures slightly earlier than grapefruit because of its lower acidity. The fruit and tree are very similar to grapefruit, but it is probably a pummelo hybrid or a natural tangelo. This is also suggested by the monoembryony of the seeds (they will not grow true to type). The fruit has some resemblance to the Attani of India and the Natsudaidai and Asahikun of Japan. Orange flesh, sweet-tart; seedy; coarse rind, prominent pores.
