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.

‘Redblush’ (‘Ruby’, ‘Ruby Red’)

Seedless grapefruit with red tinted flesh. Red internal color fades to pink, then buff.
