Citrus, Grapefruit ‘Dwarf Redblush’

Grapefruit
Rutaceae
Evergreen, Edible fruit, Trees, Decorative fruit or berries

CITRUS

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.

‘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.
