Pomelo Tree

Identify my citrus

Bought a house in Northern California with a very prolific citrus tree. Fruit looks like pomelo on inside but is perfectly round. How do I tell the difference between pomelo and grapefruit trees?

    I believe this is a pomelo. Pomelos have a unique leaf shape which can be seen here:

    It looks like your tree has these distinctive leaves.
    There are several hybrids between pomelo and grapefruit, so this could also be one of those. Unless you're able to get a genetic analysis done, you might not be able to tell specifically if it is one of these.
