Best to Buy

Available year-round, Arizona and California grapefruits are best from January through August, while Florida and Texas arrive in October through June.

Tasty Tip

Grapefruit sections add delicious flavor to delicate greens—pair with almonds or walnuts for a well-rounded meal.

Quick & Easy Recipe

Most of us think of eating a grapefruit raw, but a light brush with olive oil and a quick sear on the barbecue makes a tangy side dish.

Grapefruit is a good source of vitamin C.
