Introduction

Often referred to as one of texas's most iconic exports, the star ruby grapefruit has become a popular breakfast must-have around the world thanks to its sweet and crispy flesh.


History

Star Ruby originates from Texas and owes its gratitude to the Hensz breeding program conducted at Texas A & I University in Welasco who successfully first bred the star ruby grapefruit back in 1930 after it was first discovered growing naturally a year earlier.


Regions

South Africa


Flavours & Texture

Sweet and crispy flesh with a tarty twang.


Preparation

Peel off the rind and then remove the membranes in the same way that you would an orange. You can also cut it into quarters or eighths and eat it with a spoon, just like a grapefruit. You eat it raw or you can use it in fruit salads, juice, jams or in smoothies.
