February gives you more than one reason to pucker up. Valentine’s Day, of course; but February is also National Grapefruit Month. Loved for its puckery tang, Florida grapefruit is the bold member of the Florida citrus family tree, but it has a sweet side too!
Grapefruit has an undeserved reputation for mouth-puckering tartness that is only true of highly-acidic grapefruit varieties, not those sold by FloridaOrange.com. High acid content gives grapefruit, lemons and limes their tart taste. Some people like a fruit with kick, but most of us prefer to mix a little sweetness with our pucker. That’s why Florida grapefruit have been crossbred to create varieties that are deliciously sweet but still retain that desirable tangy zing.
- Florida Marsh White grapefruit have a sweet, mild flavor with just a hint of tang to wake up your taste buds. The perfect breakfast food, Florida Marsh White grapefruit are exceptionally sweet and juicy, making them an excellent choice for both whole eating and juicing.
