      red grapefruit

      First Fruits Farm (Integrated Pest Management in Freeland, MD)

      Ruby Red grapefruit was discovered in 1929 on a small farm in South Texas. We say discovered because the Ruby is actually a natural mutation. Fortunately, it is one of the few mutations more successful than its predecessor. Why is this? Well, it all comes down to taste. You see, earlier varieties of grapefruit were sour and tart. But Ruby Red grapefruit is sweet and tangy.

      (Product of Ecuador)

      Oranges are mainly composed of carbs and water, with very little protein and fat and few calories. Simple sugars — such as glucose, fructose, and sucrose — are the dominant form of carbs in oranges. They are responsible for the fruit’s sweet taste.

      petite bananas

      (Product of Ecuador)

      Baby bananas or petite bananas wear a thin, bright yellow signature peel. As their name suggests, they are petite in size, averaging only three to four inches in length. Baby bananas have a very dense creamy texture and once ripe their flavor is rich and sweet with vanilla and caramel undertones.
