Grapefruit is in season, healthy (full of vitamins A and C, dietary fiber and lycopene) and flavorful. Go for Rio Star Grapefruit, Rio Red, Ruby Red or Star Ruby grapefruit varieties and you’ve got a beautiful color as well. Rosy Rio Star Grapefruit is a hybrid of the two reddest grapefruit varieties, Rio Red and Star Ruby grapefruit.

Grapefruit’s flavor and color work well in recipes—from cocktails to bruschetta, steamed shrimp, asparagus (or other green sides) and salads.

In fact, we have an entire menu of grapefruit recipes, from cocktails to desserts (Rio Star Mini Cheesecakes and Rio Star Grapefruit Crème Brûlée).

Check ‘em out and add variety, nutrition and great taste to your winter menu.
