The Instacart guide to pink grapefruits


About pink grapefruits

Pink grapefruits are a hybrid of a sweet orange and pomelo. Also known as blush grapefruit, the pink grapefruit was introduced to the United States after World War II. At the time, pink grapefruit growers marketed the fruit as the favorite breakfast of Hollywood movie stars.

Pink grapefruits are round, softball-sized fruits. The pinkish-yellow skin is waxy and lightly pitted, and the light pink flesh is segmented with several seeds. Pink grapefruit is tart but slightly sweeter than white grapefruit.

Pink grapefruit is available on supermarket shelves year-round, but the peak season is from November through June. In the United States, the primary producers of pink grapefruit are Florida, California, Texas, and Arizona.

Pink grapefruit is a nutritious addition to your plate. Half of a raw pink grapefruit provides 30 calories, 8% of your daily fiber needs, 28% of your daily vitamin A, and 64% of your daily vitamin C. Pink grapefruit also has lots of lycopene and beta carotene.

FAQs About Pink Grapefruits

Pink grapefruits will stay fresh on the kitchen counter, out of direct sunlight, for up to one week. You can also store pink grapefruit in your refrigerator crisper drawer for two weeks. To prevent your pink grapefruits from drying out, wrap them in plastic wrap or place them in a plastic storage bag. Wrapped grapefruit will stay fresh and flavorful for up to six weeks. Cut grapefruit should be tightly wrapped in plastic and used within three to five days.

For longer storage, consider freezing pink grapefruit juice and zest. Freeze juice in an ice cube tray for easy portioning and use in recipes. Freeze the zest on a tray and then transfer to an airtight container. Frozen juice and zest will remain fresh for up to one year. Whole or cut pink grapefruits should not be frozen.

Pink grapefruit jam, jelly, curd, or marmalade will stay fresh for up to one year in your pantry.

Spoiled grapefruits often have large discolored spots or mold. Spoiled fruits may also feel mushy or have an unpleasant smell. Pink grapefruits with a leathery, dull rind have dried out but are still safe to consume. Dry pink grapefruits will produce less juice than their fresh, plump counterparts.

Grapefruit interacts with several over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription medications. For instance:
  • Statins: These medications are used to treat high cholesterol. Examples include Zocor and Lipitor.
  • Calcium channel blockers: These medications are used to treat high blood pressure and heart disease. Procardia is one example.
  • Immunosuppressants: These medications are used after an organ transplant. One example is cyclosporine.
  • Corticosteroids: These medications are used to treat Crohn's disease. Entocort is one example.
  • Antihistamines: These medications are used to treat allergies. One example is Allegra.
In the United States, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires warnings on medications that cannot be taken with grapefruit juice. When you take one of these medicines with grapefruit, it either increases the amount of medication in your body to an unhealthy level or prevents the drug from entering your body at all. This can cause more severe side effects or reduce the helpful effects of the drug. If you regularly eat or drink pink grapefruit, check with your medical provider regarding the safety of combining grapefruit with your medications.
