Description: The fruit is large to very large and almost round with a thick yellow rind that is occasionally blushed with pink. The flesh varies in colour from light pink to very dark pink depending upon where it is grown. The flesh texture is somewhat ricey but still juicy for a pummelo. The fruits mature early and the flavour is pleasant and sweet. Chandler fruits are seedy when cross-pollinated by citrus fruits with viable pollen and seedless when grown in a solid block or in proximity to citrus fruits that are pollen sterile, such as navel oranges and Satsuma mandarin. 1959

Description: The fruit can vary from the size of an orange to the size of a grapefruit. It has a thin, smooth, yellow rind. The flesh is yellow-orange in colour, and exceptionally juicy. The flavour is pleasantly sub-acid. Cocktail matures in early winter and the fruits hold well on the tree, puffing when they become very old, but not desiccating. Very unique flavour; you could love it or hate it. About 2/3 or this plus 1/3 Tarocco blood orange juice makes a fantastically flavoured juice drink. Cocktail is actually a hybrid of Siamese Sweet pummelo and Frua mandarin. The cross was made at Riverside, possibly in the 1950s.
