  • “Pink Grapefruit” has been described as a 6-10 ounce beefsteak, but it grew as more of a globe for me. I am always on the lookout for sweet bicolor varieties that I can grow. The big yummy bicolors are usually too late for me to get but a single fruit. I find that these smaller ones do much better.
    Pink Grapefruit has tender, melting flesh with thin skin, which makes for great eating, but when you have a dry season and you suddenly give the plant a bunch of water, or when you get huge rains, the ripe fruits will likely split. Splitting has never bothered me, because I am not a huge fan of tough skin. Since I pick nearly all of my tomatoes at breaker, splitting is normally not much of a problem for me anyway. ANY variety will split when you have 19 inches of rain over a period of three consecutive days. One must be realistic about these things.
    More to the point, Pink Grapefruit is a toothsome addition to my little collection of “Bicolors That Will Grow in Ellie’s Garden.” Highly recommended.
