Have you ever wondered how to eat a grapefruit? If you’re slightly intimidated by the idea, well – don’t be! Eating grapefruit is easy. If you have a grapefruit knife, that is great, but you don’t need one.
How to Eat a Grapefruit
- Cut the grapefruit in half horizontally to reveal the sections inside.
- With your grapefruit knife or a sharp paring knife, carefully cut around the edge of each section, being careful not to cut through the membranes.
- Place each grapefruit half in a bowl.
- With a small spoon (or your grapefruit knife), scoop out each section and enjoy! Be sure to catch the juice to drink when you’re done eating your grapefruit.
Some people enjoy sprinkling their grapefruit with sugar, but kids and adults agree that FruitShare’s Rio Star Grapefruit is sweet enough all on its own.
You can also cut your grapefruit into 12 wedges to enjoy them as you might slice an orange.
