Semi-sweet and tangy, grapefruit have a juiciness that rivals that of the ever-popular orange and have many of the same health benefits.
Grapefruit are high in vitamin C and antioxidants and studies have shown they can help reduce cholesterol.
We supply the Morrison Seedless and Star Ruby varieties.
These Morrison Seedless grapefruit are large, golden, and full of flavour and juice, with very few seeds - they are simply delicious eaten for a healthy breakfast…no sugar required!
The Morrison Seedless was brought to New Zealand by Sir George Grey, who famously lived on Kawau Island. It was later passed on to Warkworth resident Mr Morrison in 1860 who continued to develop and cultivate the variety.
The Star Ruby is known as one of the trickiest grapefruit to grow – fortunately for our customers, our Gisborne growers are adept at nurturing this dark-red fleshed, intensely flavoured variety from tree to fruit bowl.
Most often eaten for breakfast, Star Rubies also look and taste fabulous in salads (grapefruit, avocado and crayfish anyone?), cocktails, dressings and sorbets. Prized for its deep red hue and exceptional flavour, the Star Ruby will brighten up any table. And the redder the flesh, the sweeter the taste.
Our grapefruit store well at room temperature out of direct sunlight for a week, but will last much longer in the fridge where their vitamin content is undiminished.
Available from October to March.
