Referred to as a “forbidden fruit” and one of the “Seven
Wonders of Barbados,” Grapefruit was first documented in
1750 by Welshman Rev. Griffith Hughes. The name
“grapefruit” is attributed to the fruits growing in clusters
which resemble those of grapes. Commonly known for its
sour and tangy taste, grapefruit is the rotund, yellow-orange
fruit of an evergreen citrus tree. Grapefruit essential oil is
derived from the rind of this fruit and is cherished for its
many uses and benefits. In addition to Grapefruit’s robust
flavouring for a variety of dishes, Grapefruit is also
renowned for its cleansing and purifying properties.
