This is the first time we're premiering these plump, sweet yet tangy Ruby Red Grapefruits - woohooo!!! Last year's weather washed away these specialty crops, but the harvest looks good this year! Red Rubys are the sweetest and juiciest of grapefruits and are perfect for salads, sauces, dessert or even paired with seafood.
This family-owned citrus farm is located in the heart of Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana. The Becnel family has farmed in this region for decades and Farmer Thomas is the 6th generation. Once known for having ideal growing conditions for citrus, many farms have been closing due to the climate changing. Farmer Thomas' farm is located in the furthest South region of LA that still has enough soil to support citrus cultivation. This family farm is one of the last of a Louisiana citrus legacy.
Unlike the citrus you get at the store, this comes directly from a small family farm and is only in season one time a year.
Our operations manager helped sell this citrus to some of the top restaurants in New Orleans like Herbsaint and Dante's Kitchen when he lived down South and was blown away with the flavor and passion Farmer Thomas has for citrus growing. The original seeds on this farm came from the Canary Islands in the mid 19th century.
We're very honored and excited to bring New Yorkers citrus that's harvested by Farmer Thomas for pure flavor perfection. Because it is so rare to find citrus in New York straight from the farm, we suggest you stock up.
