Rio Red Grapefruit
Best-selling Pink Grapefruit
If you can only grow one citrus tree, Rio Red should be it! This huge, heat loving grapefruit has an amazing sweet taste that is almost addicting. Eat it fresh for breakfast or as a dessert. Bake it in a tart. Toss it in a salad. Stir it in a sangria. Squeeze it for juice – you won’t even need to add sugar. Rio Red is the gold standard in pink grapefruit.
The pretty trees are easy to care for and attractive in the landscape. It is naturally dwarf, so it will fit into even the smallest garden. It is a strong grower and the healthy three-year-old trees Nature Hills ships are garden ready.
The leaves are green year-round. The fruit turns from green to yellow and gets a sweet pink blush when the fruit ripens.
Rio Red should be in every garden in places that are citrus friendly. In cold winter areas, grow this sweet dwarf in pots. Put a few around your patio and bring them in to a sunny room in the winter.
