The Samut Songkram area is deep friable loam which provides fertile soil and is suitable for planting sweet fruits. The plantation includes making channels to avoid water system problem. The pomelo species that 

Samut Songkram people has planted since the past is Khao-Yai (White and large) species. This species is around 150 years. The Khao-Yai species provides quite large, white-yellow meat, crowded pulps, no slushy texture when you separate the pulps and sweet crisp taste. It is popular in 3 Amphurs which are Amphawa, Bang Kon Tee and Mueang.

Somsong Saengtawan’s pomelo garden is located at 29/3 moo 4, Tombon Bangprom, Amphur Bang Kpn Tee, Samut Songkram province. The unique of this pomelo garden is the plantation style which uses no pesticide usage at all. They will use biological fermented water instead of chemical fertilizer. They also conserve the nature balance by adapting ecological method of getting rid of the pests. Moreover, they have different style of dealing with weed. 

In the past Samut Songkram people mowed the weed until the soil was revealed. Then they collected the weed 

to throw it away. However, the land with only soil caused bad effect to pomelo trees since the sunlight will strongly cover the whole land. Consequently, the pomelo tree root in the soil would be hot until it unfortunately became ash. 

The pomelo trees might not grow well or eventually die. However, Somsong has his own way to make sure that his pomelo trees are not the house of bacteria and insects. Therefore, it is unnecessary to mow grass until 

the soil is revealed.

 Another way to get rid of the pest without using any chemical substance is letting the frogs, Raihinides, bullfrogs, toads, lizards and snakes eat the insects which lay their eggs on the young leaves. This way can also save money on getting rid of the pests. Another good point is it is safe for gardeners and consumers. With this process, it is highly trusted that the pomelo from this garden is completely non-toxic and suitable for eating. The pomelo is also accepted from people that they own great taste and they even drive to the garden to buy them. Tourists can contact for visiting this garden or buying pomelo by calling 034-761985.
