Rio Red Grapefruit Tree (Potted)

Rio Red Grapefruit Tree (Potted)

Rio Red is One of the Sweetest Grapefruits

Classic red grapefruit flavor, sweeter than most grapefruits, with bright colored flesh and a light pink blush on the skin. Ripens in winter and holds on the tree into summer, needs heat to sweeten the fruit. Grow your own grapefruit juice, also a great addition to salads.

Relatively new variety, introduced in 1984 from the Rio Grande Valley of Texas. More cold tolerant than other grapefruits, but performs best in warm climates. Attractive tree produces an abundance of fruit.

About Our Citrus

Add a little zest to your garden! Citrus trees are potted, evergreen, semi-dwarf, 12-18 months-old, pencil caliper, 12”-18” tall measured from the bottom of the pot to the top of the tree. They will, with good care, produce fragrant, self-pollinating flowers and wonderful fruit. Mature height is 8’–12’, but can be pruned to suit in ground or in containers.

Choose a sunny location, in well drained soil, sheltered from wind. They are affected by freezing temperatures, and in many locales require frost protection. Trees should start to produce fruit around the third year.

    Guarantee

    We guarantee the perishable items we sell to be in good, viable condition when we sell them. Perishable items include, but are not limited to, garlic bulbs, flower bulbs, seed potatoes, onion sets & transplants, potted or bare root trees, vegetable crowns, etc. If your perishable item arrives in substandard condition, take photographs and please contact us within 3 days of the purchase date (or delivery date) and we will provide you with a refund of the purchase price (excluding shipping costs), or a replacement. Accordingly, we urge you to open any boxes marked as ""Perishable"" immediately upon receiving them and inspect the shipment thoroughly (do not crack open heads of garlic, we do not accept claims on cracked garlic). Because some perishable items can deteriorate very quickly, we cannot accept any claims beyond the 3-day time frame as it becomes too difficult to determine if these items were delivered in substandard condition, or if they turned into such substandard condition because of having been improperly cared for or stored once delivered.
