Is there anything like a grapefruit? That slight petrol scent of the rind; the inner pink that ranges from dull blush to saturated magenta and that bears no indication of how ripe or hard the fruit may be; its sweet-tart, sugar-acid, slippery bite; the way it skirts around the pleasure zones of your mouth; its delicious French name.
In Baltimore, Mars Supermarkets sell these lovely balls of fruit at ridiculously low prices, although I received three for free from Apple Auto with my purchased oil change (that may be a special deal.). Regardless of how you procure your grapefruit, don't let the season pass you by.
Pamplemousse, je vous aime.
