Originally hybrids between oranges and pummelos, grapefruit trees can reach to 25–30 ft. tall (most are shorter), with large, dark green leaves. True grapefruit needs heat for sweet-tart fruit; it’s best in Florida, south Texas, and the desert, where fruit ripens in 9 months (can take a year or longer where there’s less heat). Vigorous grower. Intermediate in cold resistance.‘Cocktail’
Labeled a grapefruit, but is actually a mandarin-pummelo hybrid. Large fruit with greenish orange (or mottled orange-and-green) skin and pale orange, very seedy flesh. Sweeter than grapefruit, with distinctive flavor. Best quality in warm-summer areas, but worth growing in cooler regions.‘Dwarf Redblush’
Trees grow to 10–12 ft. tall with large, glossy green leaves and large (5-in.), sweet-tart, yellow fruit with red flesh that fades first to pink, then buff by the end of the season.‘Oroblanco’
Sister fruit to ‘Melogold’, with sweeter seedless white flesh. Has same low-heat requirement but is smaller and thicker skinned.‘Redblush’ (‘Ruby’, ‘Ruby Red’)
Seedless grapefruit with red tinted flesh. Red internal color fades to pink, then buff.
