Remember my seeding grapefruit?
« on: May 14, 2019, 10:14:13 AM »
This is the ruby red I grew from  seed from a fruit I bought at Publix back in 2005 i believe. I have another one in the back yard the same size. They produce hundreds of fruit every year that are of excellent quality.

They also went through that freak 16F weather we had in Jan 2018 & still produced fruit this past fall.

I see you trimmed the lower area up. I'm not sure if you remember but you gave me a seedling years ago when I stopped by. I still have it in a pot and almost managed to kill it a few times but it is a super resilient little guy that keeps hanging in there.
