Oro Blanco grapefruit is characteristically thick-skinned and white-fleshed. A nearly seedless grapefruit hybrid with white flesh, it is produced from huge fragrant, blossoms and large, glossy-green foliage. As with many white fruits, the Oro Blanco's flesh is sweet and lacks any of the typical bitterness of a grapefruit.
Oro Blanco grapefruit is available year-round with some sporadic gapping.
The Oro Blanco, meaning "white gold" in Spanish, is the product of cross-pollinating a seedy grapefruit variety and an acid-less pomelo variety. The cross results in elements of each parent, allowing for the Oro Blanco's unusual size, shape and flavor profile. Though the Oro Blanco may display a green rind during their early stages of ripening, they are just as sweet as when their peel turns yellow.
White grapefruit, such as the Oro Blanco, are high in vitamin C, fiber and potassium.
Oro Blanco grapefruit are sweet-tart and may be used in savory or dessert preparations. Use whole segments in salad or fruit dessert, or use the juice in cocktails or frozen dishes. Oro Blancos are popular in Asian cuisine and may be paired with other citrus, bitter greens, cucumbers, chiles, nuts, avocado and seafood. Use creamy fats, sharp, pepper, sweet and spicy flavors to enhance the Oro Blanco's taste. Store at room temperature for up to a week, then refrigerate for later use.
Naming its grapefruits "Doublesweet", Polito Family Farms in California makes certain its grapefruits fully mature on the tree to assure a sweeter flavor.
A cross between a Duncan white grapefruit and a pomelo, the Oro Blanco was developed by the University of California in Riverside, California. This grapefruit variety is very sweet, even when grown in coastal areas having low summer heat. Oro Blanco grapefruits are also known as Sweetie, which are the grapefruits imported from Israel.
