Here in Florida, we don’t just grow oranges—we also grow grapefruit! This wonderful fruit, similar to oranges, benefits from our sandy soil and subtropical climate. Florida is renowned for producing some of the finest grapefruit in the world. That’s why 70% of the grapefruit produced in the U.S. comes from Florida and more than 25% of the world’s grapefruit supply comes from Florida.
In this video, you’ll learn more about how grapefruit juice gets from the grove to your glass. Like oranges, grapefruit do not ripen after being picked, so they are picked at their peak for sweetness and juiciness. These fruits undergo a variety of inspections to ensure they are sweet, healthy, and delicious.
