Straight from the Texas valley, Texas Red Grapefruit are sweet, juicy and tree-ripened, literally stored on the tree to peak of perfection. The Rio Star Grapefruit combines the two reddest varieties – Rio Red and Star Ruby grapefruit. It has an overall blush on the exterior peel with a deep red interior color which is 7 to 10 times redder than the Ruby Red.
- Citrus fruits such as grapefruit, oranges, tangerines, lemons, and limes will do fine for up to a week in a cool, dark place, away from direct sunlight. But you can lengthen their lives by storing them in the fridge in a mesh or perforated plastic bag or another place with good airflow like your fruit drawer in the fridge.
- Be sure to separate fruits and veggies; many fruits contain the ripening agent ethylene (see what fruits are ethylene-producing here). That’s why there are separate drawers in your fridge for fruits and veggies.
