The History of Grapefruit
The grapefruit tree was originally from Asia. It is now grown and harvested in the United States, France, Brazil, Argentina and Israel. The Grapefruit tree itself is a large, shiny gloss-leaved tree, about 10 meters (30 feet) high, with white flowers and large, pale yellow fruit.
Grapefruit oil is cold-pressed from the peel of the Citrus x paradisis fruit, producing oil with a citrus, floral and fruity aroma. 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" was given due to the fruit's attribute of growing in clusters, which echo those of grapes.
The differences between the White and Pink Grapefruit are minor. The difference in cost is merely an example of supply and demand; there is more pink grapefruit produced because it is sweeter than the white variety.
