The fruit is yellow-orange skinned and largely oblate, and ranges in diameter from 10–15 cm. Grapefruit comes in many varieties, determinable by color, which is caused by the pigmentation of the fruit in respect of both its state of ripeness and genetic bent. The most popular varieties cultivated today are red, white, and pink hues, referring to the inside, pulp color of the fruit. The family of flavors range from highly acidic and somewhat bitter to sweet and tart.
The US quickly became a major producer of the fruit, with orchards in Florida, Texas, Arizona, and California. In Spanish, the fruit is known as toronja or pomelo.
Therapeutic use: Grapefruits are rich in vitamin C, high fiber as well as other micro-nutrients and certain phyto-chemicals. The potassium and pectin, a soluble fiber in grapefruit is effective in lowering cholesterol levels. Beside this, the white pith contains pectin and bioflavonoids that are excellent antioxidant food.
