Fruit of the Week: Grapefruit


When selecting grapefruits, look for ones that are heavier than expected for their size. This means that they will have a thinner flesh and more juice. When pressed, ripe grapefruits will be firm but a little springy. If you plan on eating your grapefruit right away, store at room temperature as they are juicier when warm. Otherwise, keep grapefruit in the refrigerator. They will stay ripe for two to three weeks.
