Dustytoes, Such a pleasant memory you have of buying fresh grapefruits in Florida!
Tee hee: Yes, I'm honored that grapefruits are "in my blood"!
I love grapefruits and used to buy them at a fruit stand in Florida. They were so fresh and delicious! Your page is very interesting. Since your grandfather had his own orchard, I think grapefruits are in your blood - so to speak.
cmoneyspinner: Tee hee hee hee, chortle chortle, giggle giggle!
@DerdriuMarriner - My dear, I hope you never leave Wizzley. Who will laugh at my jokes?
cmoneyspinner, Yes, grapefruits have mysterious origins which have yet to be determined.
I appreciate that you described this tribute as "lovely." :-)
Grapefruits are a favorite fruit for me.
Tee hee: Barbadians liking to take credit! If a place is pretty and it knows it . . .
Grapefruit origins are shrouded in mystery? Really? I did not know that. I'm from Florida and I just assumed that all citrus fruits originated in Florida! The folks from Barbados just like to take credit for it! That's what I heard! (O.o) :)
Just kidding. Never even been to Barbados. I don't know what they got from what they don't got! This Wizzle page is lovely!
VioletRose, Your appreciation of my article on grapefruits is much appreciated! I love, not only to eat and drink grapefruits, but also to write about them.
WriterArtist, It's my understanding that grapefruits are grown in India.
According to "Fruits of warm climates" by Julia F. Morton, published in 1987:
"In recent years, the grapefruit has become established in India in hot regions where the sweet orange and the mandarin are prone to sunburn." (pp. 152-158)
I hope that you have a chance to sample a grapefruit!
Very detailed article on Grapefruits, I didn't know much about this fruit. Thanks for sharing!
This fruit looks like tangerine, and I would love to taste it. Haven't eaten it before and I am not sure whether it is available in my country.
