Its leaves are dark green, it produces white flowers composed of 4 petals. The globular fruit with yellow or orange skin reaches 15 cm in diameter and is composed of numerous segments.

    Pedoclimatic needs

    The grapefruit, together with the fortunella, the bitter orange and the mandarin, is among the citrus fruits most resistant to the cold, resisting temperatures just below zero for short periods. They prefer loose and fertile soils, possibly with a good organic substance content and avoid excessively calcareous soils. Citrus fruits do not tolerate drought and must be watered and fertilized regularly during the dry season.
