Fresh new season certified organic grapefruit - per individual grapefruit, minimum 600g.

This week they are ruby red grapefruit. Much sweeter than the yellow variety.

   

The redder the flesh, the sweeter the flavor, but we find red grapefruit to be the least complex tasting (and often plenty bitter). On the upside, that color comes from lycopene, a cancer-fighting antioxidant.
The grapefruit was bred in the 18th century as a cross between a pomelo and an orange. It was given the name grapefruit due to growing in clusters, similar to grapes.

Grapefruits are low in calories but are full of nutrients, and an excellent source of vitamins A and C.

These healthy benefits include healthy skin, can help to lower our risk for many diseases and conditions, and may even help with weight loss as part of a healthy and varied diet. The juices, peels, and pulps all provide nutritional benefit.
