Organic pink grapefruits: Star Ruby

We also cultivate the organic pink grapefruit type Star Ruby here in our soil. Its color is bright pink, and its flavor is richly nuanced. Compared to its yellow sibling, the pink Star Ruby grapefruit is noticeably less bitter and boasts extremely juicy flesh with a strong flavor. Many approach this citrus fruit with suspicion, rooted in memories of the distinct taste of the yellow type, yet most unexpectedly change their minds after tasting it.
When tasted, it offers a rush of freshness and somewhat sour flavors, a wonderful combination of sweetness and acidity, and a bitter aftertaste with a final hint of raspberries.
Every grapefruit is harvested at precisely the appropriate time to exhibit its full sweetness and juiciness, meaning that the maturity level is carefully considered.

The Star Ruby Pink Grapefruit is also excellent when eaten raw with juice, but it also works well in a variety of recipes and concoctions. It can be used to make jams, cocktails like the Paloma, and salads. After peeling, we suggest removing the white skin from the grapefruit, which almost totally eliminates its slightly bitter taste.
Our pink grapefruits come in medium-large and giant sizes.
