Why does everyone love grapefruit?
At the turn of autumn and winter, it is time for a large number of grapefruits to compete for beauty. Although it looks like it will be soaked in rain and dew, if you want to say that the little cutie you can’t put down in your heart, it must be grapefruit. Different from the common grapefruit, the grapefruit has a small body and is like a big orange in the hand. When the fruit is ripe, it hangs on the tree like a bunch of grapes, so people give it the nickname “grapefruit”. The skin of the grapefruit is very thin, and with a light stroke, the fragrance of the grapefruit can’t wait to burst out, and the taste is very similar to the aroma of the grapefruit. It’s small, thin-skinned, and fruity, all for the sake of the sweetness of the pulp. The crystal clear grapefruit meat looks quiet and quiet, and after eating it in one bite, it is instantly amazing. The grapefruit meat seems to have started dancing in the mouth, and it is still a passionate disco, so sweet that the heart is trembling! Every time you eat a grapefruit, it is like drinking a glass of freshly squeezed grapefruit juice.
I would like to share with you the grapefruit, the treasure of autumn and winter fruits, which was discovered only in the past two years. The joy of eating a grapefruit alone can only be understood after experiencing it.
The grapefruit peeled and eaten with bare hands is sweet and cute. In autumn and winter, to reduce dryness and replenish water, it is perfect to have a few grapefruits in your pocket. The biggest feature of grapefruit is that it is petite, a circle larger than an ordinary orange, and about the same size as a grapefruit. Whether it is a picnic or a business trip, it is very convenient to take with you, and you can drink “grapefruit juice” anytime, anywhere. Even a person can easily eat two grapefruits, and no longer have to worry about the embarrassing scene of wanting to eat grapefruit and no one sharing it. Although the body is small, the flesh is very rich. After the grapefruit is cut, only a thin layer of skin is close to the flesh, and it can be torn open with bare hands. When I think of those grapefruits with large and thick skins, they have to be “fully armed” to peel them every time they eat grapefruits. Grapefruits have already won the peeling with bare hands! In addition to the volume advantage, grapefruit is much more juicy and sweeter than ordinary grapefruit. The juice of each fruit pulp is very rich, and a little force when peeling will pierce the pulp, and the sweet juice flows down the palm of the hand, and the whole hand seems to be coated with grapefruit-flavored hand cream. As for the taste, it is absolutely amazing, I can actually feel such a sweet grapefruit in this life! It’s not the kind of dry sweetness, but the sweetness and sweetness that is filled with juice. After eating a piece, I want to eat another piece!

From the “Pomelo Township” Zhangzhou, Fujian, the Shatian hills breed good taste. The taste of grapefruit can best reflect its growing environment, just like people’s “original family”, grapefruits that look similar, stand out from each other at the moment of entry. The grapefruit I recommend to you is from Zhangzhou, Fujian. The hilly terrain of Shatian at an altitude of 50-300 meters has its own halo, which makes the crops grown on this land exceptionally excellent. The latitude of 24 degrees north and the subtropical climate are very suitable for the growth of grapefruit. It is simply a paradise for grapefruit. Coupled with the annual average temperature of 21 °C, selenium-rich soil, and mountain spring water irrigation, imported grapefruit seems to have returned to its “hometown”. It’s even sweeter here. Planting these grapefruits cannot be replaced by machines. The local fruit farmers follow the planting rules handed down from generation to generation, and always insist on only applying farmyard manure, and let the fruit trees grow naturally through bagging to prevent insects and no ripening agent. , only to achieve the achievement of “the world’s pomelo town, China’s pomelo capital”. Grapefruit grown in this environment, peeling off the grapefruit skin, there is a charming grapefruit aroma blowing on the face, which is refreshing. Grapefruit is plump and juicy, the flesh is crystal clear, very tender, and you will never want to leave after a bite. A small piece is stuffed into the mouth, the slag is melted in the mouth, and the whole is eaten unconsciously.

Weak water three thousand, I just want grapefruit. The person who invented the grapefruit must have a girlish heart. It turned the grapefruit from a giant into a little princess.
