Cocktail Grapefruit trees are large and provide ample amounts of fruit. Thank goodness a Cocktail Grapefruit sustains their livelihood on the tree for long periods of time before perishing, because we can't get enough!

Season

Cocktail Grapefruits are available in the Winter.

Cultivation

Cocktail Grapefruits thrives in subtropical climates such as the Caribbean and within the valleys of dryer climates of the Western United States and Mexico. Though grapefruit trees can withstand a variety of soil conditions, growing regions can determine and vary the fruits' length of time from flowering to maturity and its acidity level.

The "Cocktail Grapefruit's" name suggests its size in proportion to the average grapefruit. It's actually a petite version with similar characteristics. The Cocktail Grapefruit has a thin deep yellow peel with a segmented, and seeded yellowish flesh.

Culinary Uses

Though its heavily seeded flesh makes it less suitable for eating, it is sub-acid in flavor, making it a premium grapefruit for juicing.
