Grapefruit, Ruby Red (CA) - Each

$2.29

Grapefruits have a sweet-tart flavor with a juicy nature!

Grapefruits are medium to large fruits and are round to ovate, sometimes displaying a slightly flattened appearance. The peel is generally smooth, glossy, and semi-thin with a lightly pebbled texture, covered in small oil glands that release fragrant, essential oils. The flesh has a translucent hue, ranging in color from pale yellow, pink, to dark red, and is comprised of tiny sacs filled with juice, creating an aqueous, tender, and semi-firm consistency. 

Grapefruits are an excellent source of vitamin C, an antioxidant that strengthens the immune system, reduces inflammation, and boosts collagen production within the skin. The fruits are also a good source of vitamin A to maintain healthy organ functioning, fiber to stimulate the digestive tract, and contain lower amounts of folate, potassium, and magnesium. Red and pink grapefruit varieties contain lycopene, a nutrient found in the pigmented flesh with antioxidant-like properties and protects the cells against free radical damage.

Grapefruits have a sweet-tart flavor with a juicy nature that is well-suited for fresh and cooked applications. The fruits can be sliced in half and eaten with a spoon, scooping the flesh from the membranes, or the flesh can be cut and segmented, tossed into green salads, fruit bowls, and salsa. Grapefruits can also be blended into smoothies, juiced into cocktails, or used as a garnish for fruit punches and sparkling water. Beyond fresh applications, Grapefruits are often used to add acidity to roasted meats, and the flesh can be pressed, extracting the juice, used to flavor sauces, glazes, popsicles, sorbet, or baked goods, including bars, doughnuts, cakes, and shortbreads. The Grapefruit’s peel can also be candied as a sweet, chewy snack, or the fruits can be simmered into marmalades, jellies, jams, and simple syrups. Grapefruits pair well with avocado, rose water, nuts such as pistachios, pine nuts, and almonds, herbs including tarragon, mint, rosemary, chamomile, and cilantro, meats such as poultry, beef, and fish, fruits such as strawberries, citrus, bananas, pomegranates, pineapples, and raspberries, cabbage, fennel, and vanilla. Whole, unopened Grapefruits will keep 5 to 7 days when stored at room temperature and up to 3 to 6 weeks when placed in a plastic bag and kept in the crisper drawer of the refrigerator.
