I have a grapefruit tree in my backyard. Since I’m an east coast girl who now lives in Arizona, I find it hard to believe I have citrus growing in my yard! It’s awesome. And the tree produces a TON of fruit: Even after I give dozens of the sweet-tart gems away to my neighbors, I still have more than I can handle.
It’s no different in the produce department these days — the grapefruit look amazing and after you buy a bunch, you need to find creative uses beyond eating them with a spoon a breakfast. Since grapefruit is brimming with vitamin C (a powerful antioxidant) make sure you include the treat in your weekly menu.
