Citrus paradisi - Grapefruit Ruby Red

So sweet you can skip the sugar! And they're seedless too! There's no mistaking  Citrus paradisi - Grapefruit Ruby Red   . These plump, thin skinned favorites are a blushing red and dripping with nature's wholesome healthy juice.   The medium sized fruit has a red blush beneath the yellow skin as it ripens in July, August.  Citrus paradisi - Grapefruit Ruby Red flavour is distinctly sweeter than other grapefruit, but still has that grapefruit tang. The fruit makes a wonderful juice with the red/pink colour. The Citrus paradisi - Grapefruit Ruby Red tree is medium to large when fully grown, dense and bushy and crops abundantly year after year.

Height: 6 metres.

Width:  4 metres.

Growth rate: Moderate.

Form: Rounded

Foliage: Dark green with glossy texture

Flower: White, 5 cm (2 in) four-petaled flowers

Tolerances: Likes moist, well-drained soil with neutral ph level. Thrives under part shade to full sun.

Care: Citrus trees are gross feeders - that means they need to be fed in July, November and March with a good citrus and fruit tree fertiliser. Give them 125 grams for every year of the tree’s age at each of the applications. But when the tree gets to about 10 years old or older it needs 1 1/4 kg of fertiliser. Spread the fertiliser evenly around the drip zone, water in and the tree will power away.

If the Citrus paradisi - Grapefruit Ruby Red fruits are sour there is a simple way to sweeten them. Sprinkle about six handfuls of sulphate of potash around the tree and then water in with two teaspoons of Epsom salts mixed into 10 litres of water.
