Preparation, uses, and tips
While grapefruits are often served cut in half to be eaten raw or juiced, they can also be
sliced and grilled as a side dish to serve with an entrée. Grapefruit sections or pieces
can be added to fruit salads and used in desserts.
Grapefruit can be white (really a pale yellow), pink, or red. The white variety is usually
smaller and more tart than the pink. Large, ruby-red grapefruits were discovered growing in
Texas in 1929. Some grapefruits are seedless.
