It’s a boast befitting the Lone Star State: No grapefruit grown anywhere in the world is as sweet, juicy, and doggone red as the Texas Ruby Red. Texas doesn’t bother growing white and pink ones anymore, since, well, they pale in comparison. Why the fuss? They have far less bitterness than other grapefruit, and the flesh is stunning. Don’t let new branding—Rio Red, Rio Star, Ruby-Sweet—throw you. If it’s red and from Texas, you’re in for a treat.
