There’s no denying that Texas is the best place to grow perfectly sweet and juicy red grapefruit, but what’s the secret that makes red’s so good? Keep reading to learn more about why the mouth-watering Texas red grapefruit is the sweetest and most succulent fruit in the business!
Why Are Texas Grapefruits the Tastiest?
If you want to grow sweet grapefruit, Texas is the place to be. Grapefruit don’t like freezing or cold temperatures, and Texas’s mild winters make it ideal for growing the fruit. Along with warmer temperatures, Texas is also known for its strong winds during the winter and spring, helping to give reds their characteristic scars. You might think that scarring is a bad sign, but the truth is that wind scarring is an important part of how Texas grapefruit come to be so sweet!
To get the perfect growth, we schedule our season from October to April, with the sweetest fruit being harvested from November to March.
It’s true that the majority of U.S. grapefruit are grown in Florida, so why should you choose Texas grapefruit? Florida may have more fruit, but they don’t have reds, and they don’t have Texas winds! Plus, the soil makeup in Texas also helps us produce luscious and nutritious grapefruit!
