Our team on the ground in South Africa have reported that the internal readings of our Star Ruby grapefruit are impressive and have the signature deep red colouring expected from the variety.

With a high juice content and well-balanced flavour, Star Rubies are an ideal variety to enjoy as a healthy snack, as part of breakfast or when juiced.

Our Star Ruby grapefruit are handpicked at the optimum time from our Limpopo based farms to ensure great quality fruit with a fantastic bitter-sweet flavour.

Further packhouse upgrades

Always striving for progression, it’s fantastic to see further development of our market-leading packhouse in Limpopo, South Africa.

We have recently further improved our GREEFA SmartSort and Wet-line by adding a high pressure wash system to enable our packhouse team to clean off debris even more effectively. In turn, this will increase our already high percentage of packable fruit and improve the presentation of our retail ready citrus.
