Citrus maxima, pomelo, is a citrus that is native to South Asia and Southeast Asia. It readily hybridizes with other citrus: the grapefruit is a hybrid of pomelo and orange, the tangelo is a hybrid of pomelo and tangerine. Pomelo is the recurrent parent in a BC1 mapping population developed as a resource to map quantitative trait loci affecting cold-tolerance and salt-tolerance in citrus.
