Grapefruit in Season

Grapefruit in Season

2/26/2021  By Jenifer Smith

 

This month we are spotlighting the Grapefruit. Citrus fruits are popular all year long with their peak season being between November and June. Grapefruits come in many varieties including Pink, White, Red and Oro Blanco meaning (White Gold) which is cross between a Pomelo and White Grapefruit.

Grapefruit continues to be a flavor that consumers return to season after season. Research has shown consumers love grapefruit not only for its health benefits but also for its color. Trends in fashion and color point to the coral color palette of grapefruits and give off a “fresh brightness”. Developers are aware this helps to drive what flavor profiles companies are requesting for new developed products.

Grapefruit and citrus continue to be in our top 10 flavors that we sample out. This month, Shana developed a light cocktail Grapefruit Cucumber Gin Fizz. This cocktail includes one of our Grapefruit blends and a new Cucumber blend that Shana developed. Have you tried our juices yet?
