Here in Texas, grapefruit are at the peak of their season and they are delicious! Sugar-sweet, with just a hint of the tartness typically associated with grapefruits. The one pictured above is a Rio Star (you can watch a short video about how they grow here). Red grapefruit is the official fruit of Texas! Eating just 1/2 of a grapefruit provides nearly 60% of your vitamin C intake for the day, perfect for warding off colds and flu. Plus, that gorgeous coral color just perks you right up on a bleak winter day! Somehow nature provides precisely what our bodies need at exactly the time we're most susceptible to winter blues and illness.

Best of luck always,
