First good Rio Star grapefruit in 5 years.
« on: February 04, 2019, 09:46:20 AM »
Iíve been caring for this tree for the past five years or so. Usually fruit gets damaged by cold even in enclosure, but this winter has been the warmest here Iíve seen in years with my lowest recorded temp so far being 11 degrees F, and temps have gotten above freezing every day.  I ate this grapefruit today and it was the best quality one Iíve ever produced here. 6-7 more fruit still on tree. Hope my Croxton fruit are good too. More Rio Star pics to follow.

Congrats, Citradia.  Looks tasty.  Glad to hear your winter has been mild so far this year.  Mine has been very forgiving as well. The only grapefruit that I got this year came from my UGA Lemon tree...I think it was mislabeled.  Lol
