Grapefruit

Originating from Barbados and widely grown in China, this citrus fruit is a super food that promotes health and well-being.

One of the seven wonders of Barbados, the grapefruit is said to be a horticultural accident in the 1700s. A cross between sweet orange and pomelo, it is used to be called as the forbidden fruit.

Benefits
Refreshing and reviving, the grapefruit's aroma curbs stress and anxiety while lifting self-esteem and promoting optimism. Enriched with Vitamin C, this citrus superfood aids to strengthen the immune system and boost metabolism.
History
Originally known as shaddock after Capt. Shaddock who brought the seeds to Jamaica, the grapefruit got its current name only in the 19th century which is an allusion to the clusters of the fruit on the tree that similarly appear like grapes.
