Grapefruit

The grapefruit was bred in the 18th century in Barbados as a cross between a pomelo and an orange. They were given the name grapefruit because of the way they grew in clusters similar to grapes. Now a popular breakfast food, grapefruits come in multiple varieties, including red, white, and pink hues, referring to color of the insides of the fruit. Grapefruits are low in calories but full of nutrients. They support clear, healthy skin, and may even help with weight loss as part of an overall healthy and varied diet.
