“Let’s Be Fruitful!” Feature: The Red Grapefruit

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:

  1. Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and Pectin/Soluble Fiber;
  2. Low-Glycemic Index Rating;
  3. Lycopene (a carotenoid) + other powerful Phytochemicals;
  4. 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.

Note [Beware]: Grapefruit & grapefruit juice interact with certain medications; This food-drug interaction can be unpredictable and dangerous, Always ask your doctor &/or pharmacist about potential food-drug interactions and recommendations.  Refer to “About” for caveat.
