White Flesh Grapefruit

I received an email regarding my recipe post for the Winter White Fruit Salad. The blog reader asked: "Hi Kathy, This looks delicious, but I can't figure out what grapefruit will have a white flesh. What are they called? Thanks." -AJ

So to clarify, I've posted a few photos of a white grapefruit...

My response to AJ's question: To find a white fleshed grapefruit, simply look for one with a light yellow rind, and make sure that is it not called a ruby red or pink grapefruit.

White Grapefruits are sweeter - and a tad less zesty and bitter - more smooth and juicy. They are delicious in salads or eaten alone. Try juicing one for a delightful breakfast sip. I adore white grapefruit and actually prefer them over traditional pink versions!

White fleshed grapefruits are sometimes called cocktail grapefruits. Good luck!

The grapefruit tree is a subtropical citrus tree grown for its bitter fruit which was originally named the "forbidden fruit" of Barbados.
