Ocean Spray grapefruit comes primarily from the Indian River region of Florida, as well as other select growing areas in the United States. The grapefruit harvest generally takes place between October and April, when the fruit meets our stringent quality standards for the sweetest and juiciest grapefruit.
The Growing Season
Handled with Care
Our growers pick grapefruit by hand, which is in itself an art. Grapefruit growers will tell you that the fruit's outer skin makes the best natural packaging and protection from decay, so extra special care is required to pick and handle the ripe fruit to ensure that this outer skin is not damaged.
From Fruit to Juice
Grapefruit groves are located within an hour's drive of our fresh packaging and processing facilities to ensure the freshest possible fruit. Here at Ocean Spray, we clean, hand pack and ship our fresh grapefruit with special care. We also "soft-squeeze" the grapefruit for use in our great-tasting grapefruit juices and juice drinks.
