Yup. That’s the truth, Friend. Even though we’ll have a truck in California where they grow some very good red grapefruit, Texas has ’em beat. So this month, we’ll have a second semi out in Texas just to pick up the grapefruit.
Now why would we do a crazy thing like that??
You guys are just THAT worth it. And so is the grapefruit; sweet, juicy, and more flavorful than any other we’ve tried.
So order your grapefruit now! We’re not sure if there will be another opportunity to get Texas grapefruit again this season or not. We have certified organic and conventional grapefruits, and both are available in *choice grade and *fancy grade.
Deadline To Order: January 22nd at 9:00 a.m. (central)
Pick Up Date: January 30th and 31st, depending on location

Maybe it’s the thick rind that makes grapefruit keep so well. We’re not sure. But every year someone comes up to us during peach season to tell us about the grapefruit they had for breakfast. Grapefruit they bought from Bulk Natural Foods back in December or January!
But how do they keep it so long?
Although some people just toss it in their crisper drawer and eat it slowly until summer, the rind tends to dry out this way. Most of the folks who are bragging about their grapefruit in June and July have kept it using some variation of Wilda’s method, which keeps in just enough moisture that the rind doesn’t become so shriveled.
Choice and Fancy Grapefruit. What’s the difference?
Fancy grapefruit is the grade we’re most familiar with because grocery store fruit is usually “fancy.” It is basically free of blemishes. “Choice” grapefruit, on the other hand, has some scarring or blemishes on the skin. Enable images to see an example.
