Grapefruits and Pummelos develop the best tasting fruit in areas with warm summer temperatures. The exception is Oroblanco which sweetens without summer heat. In areas with cooler climates, these types of citrus species often tend to have slightly thicker rinds.

Our favorite red-fleshed variety introduced from Texas.    Performs best in warm climates.  Fruit ripens in winter and often holds the tree into fall.  Wonderful for juice or eating fresh.          


star_ruby_grapefruitStar Ruby Grapefruit

Tart red fleshed grapefruit is widely grown in Texas and Arizona. We prefer Rio Red because its foliage doesn't get yellow mottling, but some people request Star Ruby because of the name recognition.
