The grapefruit was at one time called the ‘forbidden fruit’ and is believed to be of Caribbean origin.  Leaves are 3 to 5 inches long, pointed at the tips with a rounded base. Flowers are white. The leaves are evergreen, living for as long as two years. The grapefruit itself is actually classified as a berry (hesperidium). Grapefruit at maturity are bright yellow with a thick peel with white, pale yellow, pink or red flesh.
