Florida Red Grapefruit
Named for their characteristic red flesh, Florida red grapefruit are large, sweet, and bursting with flavor. While they are typically used for juicing, red grapefruit can also be enjoyed whole, and are a welcome addition to nearly any breakfast table.
Flame grapefruit have a deep red pulp with a slight blush to the rind and offer a different flavor profile. Because they have a higher acidity to sugar ratio per weight than red grapefruit, Flame grapefruit tend to be a bit more tart, with an intense citrus flavor.
*Fun Fact: Grapefruit get their characteristic pulp color from the carotenoids present in their flesh. These pigments are essential for our bodies to produce vitamin A, which in turn is an important nutrient promoting improved vision, bone growth, reproductive health, and immune acuteness among other qualities.
