History: The Grapefruit is a fairly new fruit, and the only citrus fruit that does not originate in Southeast Asia. It was first discovered in Barbados in the 1700’s and was known as the “Forbidden Fruit.” Grapefruit is a hybrid of a pummelo (citrus grandis) and the sweet orange (citrus sinensis). It was in the 1800′s that a Jamaican farmer named it “grapefruit” for the grape-like cluster in which it grows on trees. The fruit has long been used for treating high cholesterol. It is a popular fruit because people love the flavor. The oil and seed extract are also used in the flavoring and perfume industry.
