Our Grapefruit Range
Grapefruit are vigorous growing trees with large, glossy leaves that produce an abundance of fruit that you'll be able to share with all the community. Eat straight from the tree or enjoy a teaspoon of sugar sprinkled over the cut fruit for a delicious breakfast.
GRAPEFRUIT RIO RED (Citrus x paradisi)
A newer variety of grapefruit, that is quickly becoming the variety of choice due to its beautiful pink to red flesh and a flavour that is distinctly sweeter than other grapefruit, but still has that grapefruit tang. Like blood oranges, the colour pigmentation does vary due to climatic conditions, although it still colours well in Sydney. The skin has a red blush beneath the yellow skin. Fruit ripens July into August, although if the fruit is left on the tree it will continue to get sweeter. The fruit makes a wonderful juice with the red/pink colour. The tree is medium to large when fully grown, dense and bushy and crops abundantly year after year. Also see our Dwarf Red Grapefruit variety.
GRAPEFRUIT MARSH (Citrus x paradisi)
Being a parent of the Red Grapefruit, the Marsh Grapefruit is very similar, only with yellow coloured flesh. It is a good strong growing tree with attractive glossy leaves and it fruits abundantly. If the red flesh is not your thing, then this is the grapefruit for you. It’s sweeter than other traditional varieties and has a thinner skin.
POMELO NAM ROI (Citrus maxima)
The Pomelo Nam Roi originated in Vietnam. Similar to a grapefruit, this variety of Pomelo can bear fruit to the size of a football. The fruit is not as sour as a grapefruit, is almost seedless, and has a very thick rind, that peels away easily. The variety grown at Engall’s, ripens with a green yellow skin and a yellow flesh. It is quite a large tree, reaching 6 + metres tall. It is a good citrus option for tropical areas.
