Bee Sweet Citrus Announces Star Ruby Grapefruit Available Now
FOWLER, CA - Growing up, I was always attracted to anything that shined and sparkled. Five-year-old me had a very clear vision etched into my brain of all of the fabulous diamonds and rubies I would own when I finally became a woman. What I didn’t know then is that the intriguing gems I was longing for wouldn’t be found in the jewelry store, but in the produce department. Bringing a luxurious offering to the shelves, Bee Sweet Citrus is placing a key player of its seasonal line in the spotlight: Star Ruby Grapefruit.
“Star Ruby Grapefruit is in season now, and the fruit’s quality has been nothing short of excellent,” said Vice President of Farming Keith Watkins. “As the season changes, we’ve seen a rising demand for grapefruit, and we’re positive that consumers will be satisfied with its taste and quality.”
All of Bee Sweet’s Star Ruby Grapefruit are packaged in new, high-graphic bags and cartons to attract curious consumers. The grower’s Star Ruby Grapefruit are the deepest colored out of all red grapefruit varieties, according to a press release, and are also less acidic, packing a sweet, tangy flavor that every shopper can enjoy.
“Star Ruby Grapefruit are especially sweet and juicy in the late winter and early spring,” continued Watkins. “Consumers can distinguish them apart from other grapefruit varieties with their blushed rind and dark, red internal color.”
This delicious variety is harvested in California's Southern Central Valley, contains few to no seeds, and supplies an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin C, and potassium. Whether eaten as a snack, incorporated into tangy breakfast meals and salads, or used to top off that end-of-the-day cocktail, Bee Sweet’s Star Ruby Grapefruit has use to fit anyone’s taste buds.
I don’t see any reason to wait to stock up on this sweet, and juicy variety, so buyerrs shouldn’t either. ;As always, keep clicking on ANUK for the latest in the fresh produce industry.
