Grapefruit anyone?


We've had too many gloomy winter days here so when a bit of sunshine popped it's head out from behind the clouds today we took the opportunity to walk through the neighbour and onto the beach.

Opposite our apartment is a little house on the corner and hanging on the old rickety white fence were bags laden with Grapefruit along with a clear sign - think they were being offered for $5NZD per bag, pretty cheap really but these are way too sour for my liking. Do you like them, if not what is your favourite citrus fruit?

Love grapefruit and am thankful I have friends with trees that bear more fruit than they can use. Marmalade!

I like red grapefruit (the flesh, not the peel)... they seem to be sweeter to me. They're really good fresh in Florida (we are there when it is the season for them).

Yummy! Too bad I am too far away. We were just up in Kerikeri and got bags of oranges.

I usually juice them. I like grapefruit juice. Makes for good cocktail too.

Grapefruit is wonderful. When they are sour, juice them and mix in orange juice to sweeten. Delicious!

Pink and red grapefruit would be my favourites.

I love the trusting nature of the sellers..."put money in letterbox"...this reminds me of my childhood in British Columbia, Canada's Okanagan Valley. People could do this, and know the right amount of money would appear in the mail box. I don't think anyone grew grapefruit there, the growing season may have been too short or the temperatures too cool, but there were orchards as far as the eye could see...apples, pears, peaches, apricots, etc. Now the orchards are gone and in their place huge houses by the thousand. So sad.
