Grapefruit, Star Ruby
A true grapefruit commercially grown in NZ. The fruit are medium to large sized, thin skinned, juicy with a tangy flavour. The deep red hue of the flesh makes it extremely attractive to add to salads and sorbets! The darker the fruit, the sweeter it is. It is reasonably seedless if no other citrus are growing nearby. Fast growing tree. Needs a bit more TLC than a lot of citrus, responds well to mulch and regular watering. Once established it is heavy bearing and requires space in which to develop properly.
