Grapefruit comes in two types – pink and white. The essential oil is very similar. Our pink grapefruit essential oil is cold-pressed from Citrus Racemosa fruits grown in France.
Did you know that the genetic origin of the grapefruit is a natural hybrid? One ancestor of the grapefruit was the Jamaican sweet orange (Citrus sinensis), itself an ancient hybrid of Asian origin; the other was the Indonesian pomelo. Both Citrus Sinensis and Citrus Maxima were present in the West Indies by 1692.
One story of the fruit’s origin is that a certain “Captain Shaddock” brought pomelo (Citrus Maxima) seeds to Jamaica and bred the first fruits, which were then called Shaddocks. But that’s a story 🙂
The grapefruit then probably originated as a naturally occurring hybrid between the two plants sometime after they had been introduced in Jamaica.
