Last of the grapefruit


The theme for April is yellow. Thus, the grapefruit tree. We happen to have one of those grapefruit trees that loads up every year. While the grapefruit have a lot of seeds, they are also very sweet and very juicy. When I took this photo a few days ago, these were the few remaining specimens.

un beau verger, avec de superbes citrons. cela donne envie d'une bonne citronnade fraiche

a beautiful orchard, with superb lemons. it makes you want a good fresh lemonade

Oh grow your own grapefruit, that's so exotic! Are they really sweet? I thought the sweet ones were the pinkish ones!

Jim said...

Neat to have a grapefruit tree in your yard. I love them.

JM said...

Very nice composition! I would have one of these now! :-)

Sorry to see the end of our citrus season. Now we have to wait for late fall to start harvesting again. My neighbor has a tangerine tree that is loaded but I need to check to see if they are still good. If they are.. well... there will be tangerine juice in the fridge tomorrow!

Florida grapefruit, simply the best!

I've never tasted a real greapfruit. I wish I could have some. :) Nice entry for the theme.

Beautiful composition, great yellow and very good choice.

Ineke said...

thats a fantastic photo, have never seen grapefruits actually still on the tree.

Steffe said...

That's perfect for the theme day!

How lucky that you get to eat fresh grapefruit right off the tree! Those look ready! That's one of the things I really miss about Florida. We had bananas, sapodilla, coconuts, avocados, and papaya.

Breakfast right out of the back yard...can't beat that. A nice yellow picture.

Jilly said...

The first grapefruit today and how wonderful it is. We have loads of lemons and oranges in Menton but no grapefruit. I suspect it needs a different climate. Nice choice.

Daryl said...

Nice shot ..

Gordon said...

A great choice; yellow and juicy. You have a healthy looking tree there.

Lois said...

They look good! Nice Theme Day post!

Bergson said...

yellow fruits are not the best but it is easier to pick

Joy said...

They look juicy! I wish I could enjoy grapefruit, but I'm hyperacidic.

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Come back tomorrow!

Would love so much to pick my grapefruit from a tress every morning!!
I just need to move to Florida I guess!!!

Jacob said...

@ All - There is a problem in paradise. We have too many grapefruit; can't possibly eat them all. Nobody wants them 'cause they have their own trees.

So, we eat as many as we can, and the rest hang until they drop.

This is just the most edible delicious post.

Hilda said...

Would you believe I've never had a grapefruit? We have something similar, the suha, but according to those who've had both, they're still very different.

Very yellow fruit — perfect for theme day!

Jacob said...

@ Hilda: No, I can't believe you've never had a grapefruit. I guess I just assumed grapefruit grew all over the world in similar climes.

But then, I've never had a suha, either.

Glennis said...

Nice big juicy grapefruit, just perfect for breakfast.

Small City Scenes said...

Oh YummY!!! What a bright yellow--happy and sunny. Good shot. MB

Great shot for the theme day, Jacob.

Better too much Grapefruits than too little. We must import them, mostly from Israel at great cost.

Fresh grapefruit right off the tree... what a luxury! I have a small key lime tree in a pot. It was producing some fruit before we left, hopefully they'll be well on their way by the time I get home.
