The Ruby Red Grapefruit, a cultivar of Citrus paradisi, is a popular citrus fruit known for its attractive ruby-red to pink flesh and a balance of sweet and tart flavors. This grapefruit variety is a result of natural mutation and is prized in agriculture and culinary use.

In cultivation, Ruby Red Grapefruit trees typically grow to about 15 to 20 feet in height and spread, forming a round, symmetrical canopy. The leaves are glossy, dark green, and the tree produces white, fragrant flowers. These flowers develop into the large, round fruits for which the tree is known.

The distinguishing feature of the Ruby Red Grapefruit is its fruit, which has a yellow to orange peel and a juicy, ruby-red or pinkish interior. The flesh is less bitter than that of other grapefruit varieties, with a good balance of sweetness and acidity. The fruit is typically harvested in the late winter to early spring.

Ruby Red Grapefruit trees thrive in full sun and require well-draining soil. They need regular watering but are sensitive to over-watering and poor drainage. The trees are relatively cold-sensitive and need protection from frost.

In landscaping, Ruby Red Grapefruit trees are valued not only for their fruit but also for their ornamental qualities. They can be planted in orchards, home gardens, and are suitable for large container planting. The tree's attractive form, fragrant flowers, and colorful fruits make it a lovely addition to suitable outdoor spaces.

Overall, the Ruby Red Grapefruit tree is a rewarding plant for those looking to grow fruit trees. Its delicious fruit, fragrant flowers, and ornamental appeal make it a popular choice among home gardeners in citrus-friendly climates.
