Florida Grapefruit: From Grove to Grocery

When a Florida Grapefruit tree buds flowers, that’s just the beginning of a nearly year-long process to grow the perfect fruit.

Our Florida Grapefruit growers know better than anyone how much work it takes to grow the perfect fruit. That work, however, is spread over several months, because the time the tree buds flowers to when the fruit is ready to pick could be nearly a year. Then, the fruit is packed and shipped all over the world, where it appears on grocery shelves awaiting eager shoppers.
