FOWLER, CA - With supply of many California citrus crops dwindling, Bee Sweet Citrus has made an announcement that will have citrus fans and the stores that supply them take heart; Bee Sweet’s supply of Star Ruby grapefruit is expected to remain strong over the next few months.
“Grapefruit fans should take advantage of the next few weeks to stock up on one of their favorite citrus varieties,” stated Bee Sweet Citrus Sales Representative Joe Berberian. “Star Ruby grapefruit isn’t just tasty, it’s also an excellent source of vitamin C and incredibly versatile.”
According to the company’s press release, studies show that consuming one serving (or half) of one Star Ruby grapefruit can provide over half the recommended daily intake (RDI) of vitamin C. Ideal for health-conscious consumers, Bee Sweet’s Star Ruby grapefruits are low in calories, contain approximately 320 milligrams of potassium and two grams of fiber, and are an enticing deep red color, to boot.
“Star Ruby grapefruit are sweet, yet tart in flavor, and can be used in a plethora of different ways,” explained Director of Communications Monique Bienvenue, in a press release. “This red-fleshed grapefruit variety is a great alternative for standard breakfast foods and can even act as a new ingredient for a post-workout smoothie; it should definitely be a staple in households everywhere this season.”
In addition to grapefruit, the company noted, Bee Sweet’s customers can anticipate the arrival of lemons, mandarins, and oranges, as the company’s import season begins.
