Grapefruit is a subtropical citrus hybrid between the sweet orange and shaddock. The fruit is said to have been introduced to the Caribbean from Asia in the 17th century. However, the unexpected citrus crossbreed was said to have originated in Barbados, gifting us with the distinct sweet, sour taste we have come to know and love. Grapefruits are an excellent source of vitamin C and have been promoted as an aid for weight loss. This juice recipe is a great way to enjoy grapefruit as a refreshing drink—another citrus must-try Fresh Lime Juice Recipe.
