On the news, I just heard a native of Nayarit in Mexico refer to a grapefruit tree as un toronjo. I think this should be added as a term in the second entry, after pomelo.

    Thanks! :) According to DAMER, toronja for the fruit is used in many countries in Latin America. This is also used for the tree in some of those countries. As for toronjo, CORPES says this is only used in Mexico. I've made the necessary additions and adjustments in this entry.
