In the early 1700's, a fleet of Spanish galleons, loaded with gold, silver, and jewels, were shipwrecked off the coast of Indian River County, earning that portion of Florida's seaboard the name "Treasure Coast". Fortune seekers have recovered much of the loot, but there's still a gem to be found on the mainland: our Ruby grapefruit. It's a remarkably delicious find, loaded with flavor, vitamin C, fiber, antioxidants, and a pulp that sparkles like the stone it's named for. Treasure hunters, your search is over!
Available November through April
True story: When our farmer and his wife were newlyweds, he always served her the bottom half of the grapefruit at breakfast. "It's sweeter," he'd explain, and they'd sit down to discuss the merits of bottom half vs. top. The top was like the bottom, but with a tad bit more tang. Twenty some years later, they've ended the debate. Now, they each enjoy a whole grapefruit. So can you. With Indian River Grapefruit, you can halve your fruit and eat it, too.
