This beautiful red variety was bred in Texas, it has one of the darkest red pigments of the grapefruit varieties. The fruits themselves tend to have a red blush but a smooth yellow rind, they are often smaller than a traditional variety but make up for it with their flavour and the fact that they usually have very few seeds!

Whilst the Star Ruby has good resistance to the cold we do recommend frost protection during the Winter.

Grapefruits make an excellent, healthy breakfast with their sharp, acidic taste they really wake you up in the morning! Packed full of Vitamin C, Potassium and fiber.

A harvest of three to five full-size grapefruits is possible on a five year old tree. A mature 20 year old tree can produce 20 to 30 per year.

Recognised to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.

  • Self fertile.
  • Like a sunny, sheltered position.
  • Prefer free draining, slightly acidic (pH 6 - 6.5) soil.
  • Can be grown outside through the Spring and Summer months but needs frost protection.
  • Requires a minimum of 5C (41F)and ideally 10C (50F)or higher.
  • Please note that citrus plants will drop leaves with extreme changes in temperature - they usually just re-leaf.
  • Edible flowers.
  • Perfumed flowers.
  • Red flesh.
  • Fruits can take up to 18 months to ripen (but well worth the wait!)
  • Can be grown in pots.
  • Ensure the compost remains moist but doesn't get overly wet.
  • Never let the plant sit in water (as this will cause rot).
  • Feed the trees once a month from April until September and then every three months the rest of the year with a quality, general fertiliser.
  • Any pruning that is required is best done late Autumn when the tree is dormant.
