 Grapefruit: 

  • Look for grapefruits with thin, smooth, firm skin that is blemish free.
  • Pick those that are heavy for their size.
  • Grapefruit can be stored at room temperature up to 1 week or in the refrigerator 2 to 3 weeks.
  • Grapefruit are ready to eat when they’re picked. No need to leave them out to ripen, just peel or cut and enjoy!
