Cocktail Grapefruit

Do you like grapefruit, but don’t like the bite? Try Cocktail Grapefruit. This fruit is extra sweet, juicy, and unique. It’s not actually a grapefruit at all, but a cross between a Frua Mandarin orange and a Pummelo. The flavor is similar to a grapefruit’s but much sweeter and less acidic. For a special drink, try the Cocktail Grapefruit Cocktail, fresh squeezed Cocktail Grapefruit juice, over ice with a shot of vodka. Of course, I think I just negated all the healthy aspects of the fruit, but what the heck. It sure is tasty. Cocktail grapefruits are on sale at Joe’s, while they last, 69¢ each.

  6. Smiles, I checked with Diana Tam at the Farmer Joes and she said the fruit is seasonal. She thinks it will probably be available at the same time this coming year. The operational word here is “probably” since we really don’t know how fruit crops are going to turn out.

    Marty, the cocktail grapefruit is indeed not a “true grapefruit.” I would check with your doctor first before I gobble a bunch of it. I cannot eat grapefruit as it interferes with the effectiveness of my anti-seizure drugs but I do eat the cocktail grapefruit.

  9. Cocktail grapefruit is one of the best tasting fruits that there is. I do not even eat those sour white grapefruits. I bet some day these will be more popular than grapefruits.
