Citrus x paradisi has relatively large fruits that are sour, bitter, and somewhat sweet all at once. The fruits often resemble a cross between oranges and pomelos. Dried grapefruit peel provides bright and unique citrus notes to bath and body creations, beverages, extracts, and culinary delights.
The grapefruit is not even 300 years old, and at the time of its “discovery” was considered a horticultural accident during the 1700’s. An English lad by the name of Captain Shaddock brought the seeds to the West Indies from Polynesia in 1693. There are no records to prove it, but many theorize that the grapefruit is a cross between a pomelo and a sweet orange, but no one knows for sure how it came about.
