      I know, even here I think it’s expensive. And yet as you drive around you see all kinds of citrus trees with fruit that is just dropping because no one is eating it. The usual excuse is that there’s too many seeds…crazy.

      Ha! I actually have a grapefruit spoon. I used to use the grapefruit knife from Pampered Chef. I have four of the! I prefer the spoon. It’s funny, I am craving a grapefruit again. Yummy!

    We love grapefruit! Just the other day I found 18-pound bags of grapefruit at Wal-Mart for $2.96 per bag! This was the first time I have ever found grapefruit this cheap. We have been feasting on them each day; my favorite way to eat them is to peel like an orange, tear back the inside skin and eat the pulp. Yum!

      That is an amazing price! Our friend who grows the grapefruit said that she had grapefruit in refrigerator all the way until June last year. She said the peel dried out but the inside was fine. So you might want to stock up.
