Florida Climate Makes Our Grapefruit Sweet

Grapefruit have a reputation for having a mouth-puckering tang, but Florida grapefruit are surprisingly sweet and delicious. Why? It’s the climate here in Florida. Hot days and warm nights boost the natural sugar production in Florida citrus fruit. Grapefruit grown in Florida’s warm, subtropical climate have a high sugar content and low acid content. The delightful result is Florida grapefruit that are sweet and juicy instead of tart and sour like the grapefruit grown in some other parts of the United States.

The two most popular varieties of Florida grapefruit are Marsh White grapefruit and Ruby Red grapefruit. Both varieties of Florida grapefruit are sweet, juicy and seedless which makes for easy — and delicious — eating.

But what about the tang that makes grapefruit and grapefruit juice so refreshing? Think of the difference between biting into a fresh lemon and sipping a glass of fresh-squeezed lemonade. Many varieties of grapefruit have the mouth-puckering tartness of a fresh lemon; but Florida grapefruit have the delicious, sweet tang of fresh-squeezed lemonade.
