An Ode to Texas Red Grapefruit!

with one comment

If you ask a Texan what color the inside of a grapefruit is, chances are they’ll say “red.” This may seem like an odd response to the rest of the country because most varieties of grapefruit have pink or white flesh. But here in Texas, about a hundred years ago, a genetic mutation caused our pink and white grapefruit crop to turn “ruby” red.

Texas grapefruit is a total rock star in the grapefruit world – it’s sweet, bold, and stands out in the crowd! Get a craving yet? Good timing, because it’s citrus season, so you won’t have any trouble finding these local gems at farmers’ markets and grocers you trust.
