Introduction

Red Rio Grapefruit is a citrus masterpiece cultivated in the sunny orchards of Texas. With its vibrant reddish-pink hue, each juicy bite is a harmonious blend of sweetness and tanginess, offering exquisite flavours, and wholesome nutrition in every bite.

History

Originating from the sunny orchards of Texas, this grapefruit variety emerged as a product of careful cultivation and crossbreeding. Developed in the mid-20th century, Rio Red quickly gained fame for its exceptional sweetness, vibrant colour, and juiciness. It represents a harmonious marriage of traditional citrus qualities with modern breeding techniques, making it a beloved choice for those seeking a delightful citrus experience.

Regions

Initially cultivated in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas, Rio Red Grapefruit has since spread its roots to various citrus-friendly regions globally. Today, you'll find these ruby red gems flourishing in sunny orchards across not only Texas but also in parts of Arizona, California, and other warm climates. The combination of ample sunshine and well-drained soils contributes to the unique flavour profile that sets Rio Red apart from other grapefruit varieties.

Flavours & Texture

Bursting with a perfect balance of sweetness and tanginess, each bite is a symphony of citrus notes. The texture is tender yet firm and the juiciness is unparalleled, creating a refreshing and invigorating experience.

Preparation

Begin by cutting the fruit in half, then use a serrated grapefruit spoon or a knife to effortlessly separate the segments. Rio Red Grapefruit can be savoured fresh on its own, added to salads, or transformed into a zesty juice.
