National Grapefruit Month - February


During the month of February, get your fill of the ruby reds, marsh, pomelo and oroblanco because it is National Grapefruit Month!

These citrus fruits range from white to red and sweet to tart but add a brightness to the tongue that will make anyone perk up. And, grapefruits are extremely healthy for you. High in vitamins C and A, grapefruits also pack in the potassium.  They contain no cholesterol or sodium and only 52 calories per serving. This month, celebrate by eating all the grapefruit you want and enjoy this tart snack guilt-free!


Try one of the several varieties of grapefruit until you find one you like and use #NationalGrapefruitMonth to share on social media. Good news, it’s citrus season! That means it’s the best time of year to add a little grapefruit to your diet. Want a few more excuses? Here you go.

  1. Grapefruit is loaded with Vitamin C, and is friendly to basically any and every diet on the planet. It’s cholesterol-free, fat-free, gluten-free, raw, vegan, full of antioxidants, and the list goes on.
