Hear is a nice recipe for those who like red grapefruit.
Cut grapefruit in half , then run a knife around the inside next to the skin, also use the the knife to cut in segments , careful not to go right thru as need to keep in half.
Next top with some cashews and then smother in honey.
Place in a 200 degree oven for 15 or so minutes.
Remove and enjoy. My dinner tonight :thumbs: .

Sounds great, I love my red grapefruit tree.

As an aside, grapefruit is an amazing thing. It really increases the absorbance of a lot of medications that are taken orally. If you're on a medication that is influenced by grapefruit it will be listed in the instructions.

I have citrus too - grapefruit (red and yellow), Seville and Blood orange, Lime (Kaffir and Tahitian), Lemon (Myer and Eureka) and Calamondin. Probably some of the only successful citrus in the area. We have very cold, frosty winters. Most of them fruit well as they are on the lower edge of a terrace facing into a NW courtyard - however despite extra potash etc the grapefruit tends to be more pith than flesh.
Our bedroom opens onto the courtyard and the smell of citrus in bloom and the hanging the Rosemary is magic in the late afternoon.

I tried a blood orange after the success of the ruby grapefruit. Seems it doesn't get cold enough here to make them colour up red. All I got was a pretty ordinary orange coloured orange!
