 Carmelito Mercado is the top pomelo producer and distributor in the Philippines. From his humble beginnings as a trader, Mercado’s determination and thirst for knowledge to improve his business has bore fruit.

As a graduate of Commerce, farming isn’t a part of his skill. His friends invited him to join the Davao Fruit Association, where he learned the basics of farming. A fervent self-made scholar, Mercado purchased several books from the US on citrus farming.

What started as a 1-hectare lease has now expanded to the 350-hectare Davao Golden Pomelo Farm that Mercado owns. It produces the Magallanes variety – the preferred variety of Filipinos for its sweet pink flesh. The oldest trees in the farm are 17 years old and can bore as much as 600 kg per plant.
