Perfect Pickins: Grapefruit

With its delicate, tart flavor, grapefruit is one of those light and refreshing fruits that I tend to associate with summer. However, like most citrus, grapefruit is at its peak right now. To find the perfect grapefruit follow these tips:

  • It should be round and smooth. Avoid ones with puffy or soft skin.
  • Try to find one that is heavy for its size. The heavier it is, the juicier it will be.
  • The skin should have a slight give when pressed gently.
  • The skin should also appear slightly shiny. A dull skin means it's not as fresh.

Once you get your grapefruit home, store them at room temperature for up to a week, or in the refrigerator for 6-8 weeks. Serve them at room temperature for a juicier delight.
