Try All Our Varieties:
The Ruby Red, a medium to large-sized variety of grapefruit, has a smooth, yellow rind. Inside, the flesh is juicy, sweet, and pink or red in color. Ruby Red grapefruits have very few seeds. Grapefruits get their name from the way they grow in clusters on trees, like grapes. These are great for slicing and eating fresh, but also make an excellent salad topper. If you’re looking for a way to cut calories from your diet, try squeezing fresh juice over broiled fish or poultry instead of using butter.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do you pick a perfect grapefruit?

How should I store my fruit?
Store fruit at room temperature. Grapefruit can last about 1 week; when refrigerated, they can last several weeks.
Is all grapefruit tart?
No. Certain varieties of grapefruit contain less acid-to-sugar ratios and are quite sweet. Sweet varieties include Ruby Red and Star Ruby. You can peel and eat them just like an orange.
