It’s time to talk about grapefruits, guys. You all know I have my favorites when it comes to food, and grapefruits is top of the list. If it’s winter, you’re pretty much guaranteed to find a grapefruit or three in my refrigerator. That’s why I’m super excited to tell you all about Florida Grapefruits.

I could tell you all kinds of useful things about grapefruits from Florida. Like how they are at their sweetest and most juicy just when other fruits are out of season – between the months of January and March. I could also tell you about how grapefruits make a really healthy snack – with lots of nutrients and vitamin C. Or I could tell you about how the climate in Florida can affect the outside of the grapefruit, making it look (not taste!) less attractive than other grapefruits. But the most important thing that you’ve got to know is that Florida grapefruits are simply the most sweet and juicy kind – and that I love them. Really. After reading up on Florida grapefruits, I went to look at the bag of my best-grapefruits-I-had-all-season. Sure enough? They’re from Florida – because that’s where the best grapefruits come from.
