Hello! I really wasn’t planning on this post, until I saw such fresh-looking beauties today at the local market. So I thought I would share with you a short post of mine [that I did earlier this fall for another site] to simply review some of this fruit’s wonderful attributes… Attributes known (per available research) to help protect cells from ongoing assault & damage that could otherwise foster disease & illness, including: cancer, cardiovascular disease, macular degeneration, & infection!
Value of the Red Ruby — Red Grapefruit!
The Red Grapefruit is admired for its:
- Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and Pectin/Soluble Fiber;
- Low-Glycemic Index Rating;
- Lycopene (a carotenoid) + other powerful Phytochemicals;
- Reported supply of little to no traces of pesticides, per the EWG.
—Peak grapefruit season relates to where it’s grown, but generally from late fall through spring in the USA [Texas/Florida, then Arizona/California]; available at peak from outside of US during other months. (The Florida Red Ruby looked really nice here today in mid-December.)
—The Red Ruby Grapefruit is even the official “state fruit” of Texas! …must be a BIG deal then.
Plus what a refreshing, zesty aroma! This Red Ruby Rocks for Many Fruitful Reasons.
Maybe they’ll catch your eye more often now, too! Enjoy.
