Bright yellow or orange skin with reddish and juicy flesh inside. Has the same acidity as the regular oranges but with a distinctive bitter, sour taste and larger size a great snack in the middle of the day and a thirst reliever due to its juiciness nature.
Most often eaten fresh in breakfast preparations, grapefruit may also be used in savory salads, baked dishes, or juiced into cocktails, vinaigrette or frozen desserts.
Store it at room temperature if you plan to eat the fruit soon, because citrus fruits are always juicier when slightly warm. If planning to store grapefruit for a longer period, place the fruit in a plastic bag and store in your fridge crisper. Stored this way, grapefruits will last up to 6 weeks.
