Where is ruby red grapefruit grown?

The Red grapefruit, starting with the Ruby Red, has even become a symbolic fruit of Texas, where white grapefruit were eliminated and only red grapefruit were grown for decades. Using radiation to trigger mutations, new varieties were developed to retain the red tones which typically faded to pink.

Do grapefruit trees self pollinate?

Citrus. Most citrus trees grown indoors or outdoors are self-fruitful, including oranges, grapefruit, kumquats, lemons and limes. However, some mandarin orange varieties produce more fruit with cross-pollination, but those fruits may have more seeds than those that self-pollinate.
