MeloGold Grapefruits are a hybrid variety and sibling of the Oro Blanco. No other grapefruit has similar lineage to the Oro Blanco than the MeloGold. Just like the Oro Blanco, the MeloGolds were developed from a seedless and acid-less variety crossed with a seedy, white grapefruit variety. The result created a grapefruit that married flavor, consistency and productivity. The Melogold Grapefruit is considered to be preferable over the Oro Blanco and its parent varieties.

MeloGold Grapefruits are roughly oval shaped with a flattened base. When mature, their rind is tough and golden yellow with a thick layer of white pith. MeloGold Grapefruits flesh is a pale, translucent yellow, segmented, seedless, tender and juicy. The flavor of the MeloGold is mild and sweet; it is known as the sweetest of all grapefruit varieties.
