*Rio Red Grapefruit
*(image is for illustrative purposes only, actual tree may look different)
They say that things are bigger when they come from Texas. And the Rio Red Grapefruit is certainly no exception when it comes down to taste! Having originated in Texas, there is no missing the deep red color and BIG grapefruit flavor of the Rio Red. The trees like high summer heat, which is necessary to produce high-quality fruit. The fruit tends to be large-ish, with a slightly pebbled surface. The outside rind frequently has a pink blush, but is never "bashful" in taste. The Rio Red has a mid to late-season maturity time table. So, if you are looking to grow your own grapefruit tree, why not the "Rio Red"? The dwarf grapefruit tree with flavor the size of Texas!
PLEASE READ PRIOR TO ORDERING: To allow for a shorter amount of time that your tree will be under the "stress of shipping", these young trees are shipped directly from our supplier to you. As soon as your tree is shipped, you will receive a tracking number in order to track your tree.
Also...when prepared for shipping, the soil is removed from the tree’s roots and they are carefully packed with moist wood shavings in a plastic bag. So, bare-rooted citrus trees should be planted in a 12-14” container, or in the ground and watered upon arrival.
And finally...due to USDA restrictions, citrus trees cannot be shipped to: Arizona, Texas and Florida.
