Can you believe while out for a drive, to a nearby town, I came across an 18 foot tree loaded with large round yellow fruit?
Looking at the tree, from inside my truck, I thought they might be golden apples.
I had just rolled a little past the house, when I noticed someone sitting on the front porch.

Now, I wished I had photographed her, using a long pole gadget, that seemed to grab the grapefruit off the tree.
She told me it was a very old tree, planted by the previous owner. I had no idea a tropical tree could grow this tall in my part of Texas.
After all, we can have some very harsh winters with temperatures often below freezing.
I've since found a recipe for Grapefruit Marmalade. I plan to make some next week end from my fresh grapefruit....
