“Star Ruby Grapefruit is perfect for those who enjoy tangy citrus without the acidity,” said Bee Sweet Citrus Director of Communications Monique Mueller. “With spring in full swing, there’s truly no better time to try one out than now.”

The variety is known for its deep red color and sweet, tangy flavor. As detailed in a release, with few to no seeds, Star Ruby is less acidic than other varieties of grapefruit, which makes it an excellent complement to consumers’ snack or breakfast recipes.

“Grapefruit harvest in the desert (D3) is wrapping up, and we’ve recently begun harvest in the Central Valley (D1),” stated Bee Sweet Citrus Director of Harvesting and Grower Relations Randy Stucky. “While the crop estimate is down from last season, the quality of the fruit has been excellent—with good external blush and internal color.”
