Grapefruits look nothing like grapes in color or size, but they do grow in clusters that (sort of) remind you of grapes if you aren’t from California. As with many citrus varieties, they’re a cross between two parents—in this case, sweet orange and pomelo. Grapefruits originated in Barbados, but grow winningly well in much of California. While Ruby Reds are associated with Texas, we grow pink as well as white and gold varieties. Look for specialty grapefruit spoons, with jagged edges to help scoop out the fruit from halved grapefruits.
