Marsh Grapefruit- Taste - Time
« on: May 07, 2018, 09:02:35 PM »
I have an in ground seedless Marsh grapefruit tree.  I picked a few fruit in late February, the taste was OK (my wife said it was too sour).  I picked some fruit about March 20.  The taste was better.  I personally liked the taste, my wife said it was too sour.  I picked the last fruit April 15.  On April 15, I noticed the fruit had begun to become soft, the taste was excellent.  My wife said that the fruit was much better,  NOTE: she is a sweeter red grapefruit fan, and I am a white grapefruit fan.  Were still very good friends.

  At least she likes them somewhat.  I used to have a hard time giving away grapefruit from a tree I used to have.

Of course Duncan is the gold standard for grapefruit flavor.
