Citrus X paradisi

Referred to as a “forbidden fruit” and one of the “Seven Wonders of Barbados”, Grapefruit was first documented in 1750 by Welshman Rev. Griffith Hughes. The name “grapefruit” is attributed to the fruits growing in clusters which resemble those of grapes. Grapefruit is known for its energising, invigorating and uplifting aroma. Grapefruit is also renowned for its strong citrus and fruity flavour.
