Grapefruit’s tart, mouth-puckering reputation harkens back to the pummelos brought from the West Indies to the Caribbean during early sea voyages. Full of seeds and tart as lemons, pummelos did not make good eating. But a spontaneous cross between a pummelo and a sweet orange changed citrus history. With careful cultivation, Florida growers eventually produced the sweet, seedless Florida Marsh White grapefruit we love today.
