Correspondingly, what has happened to white grapefruit?
In fact, the only thing that saved the grapefruit in America was an accident of nature. That's right! A simple mutation altered the fate of the fruit in the States and in the world. The original white grapefruit gave birth to a pink mutant grapefruit, which eventually spawned a red mutant grapefruit.
Also Know, is grapefruit juice bad? Grapefruit juice and the actual grapefruit can be part of a healthy diet. Grapefruit has vitamin C and potassium—nutrients your body needs to work properly. But it isn't good for you when it affects the way your medicines work, especially if you have high blood pressure or arrhythmia (irregular or abnormal heart beat).
Keeping this in view, is there a shortage of grapefruit?
There is a slight shortage on the French market. "There is almost no Turkish production on the market anymore, but there is still some Spanish, Israeli and Florida grapefruit," says a trader. The trader laments the annual decline in the production volume of Florida grapefruit.
Why is grapefruit juice so expensive?
In all, Florida grapefruit production is down more than 60 percent since the turn of the century, according to data from the USDA. Naturally, grapefruits, which are typically among the cheapest citrus, have gotten more expensive over the years. And higher prices have meant even lower demand.
