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.


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.


Star Ruby Grapefruit originated in the warm and sunny climate of the Rio Grande Valley in Texas. Today, it is cultivated in several regions across the globe, including Florida, California, Israel, and South Africa. These diverse regions provide optimal conditions for the fruit to thrive, resulting in the highest quality grapefruits that boast a perfect balance of sweetness and acidity.

Flavours & Texture

The Star Ruby Grapefruit's succulent flesh is refreshingly sweet, coupled with a tangy undertone that adds a zing to each bite. The deep red pulp is tender, juicy, and wonderfully aromatic. The texture is both luscious and satisfying.


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.
