MeloGold grapefruits are roughly globular to oblate in shape with a flattened base. When mature, their rind is tough and golden yellow with a thick layer of white pith. The peel, punctured or zested, emits a bright citrus perfume. MeloGold grapefruit flesh is a pale, translucent yellow, segmented, seedless, tender and juicy. The flavor of the MeloGold is mild and sweet and is known as the sweetest of all grapefruit varieties.
Melogold grapefruits are available in winter through early spring months.
MeloGold grapefruits are a hybrid variety and sibling of the oro blanco grapefruit. No other grapefruit has similar lineage to the oro blanco than the MeloGold. Just like the oro blanco, the MeloGold was developed from a seedless and acid-less pomelo variety crossed with a seedy, white grapefruit variety. The result created a grapefruit that married flavor, consistency and productivity. The Melogold grapefruit is considered to be preferable over the Oro Blanco and its parent varieties.
