Ruby red grapefruit are available from the end of winter into spring. The grapefruit is the largest known citrus and is named for the fact that it grows in heavy grapelike clusters. It is a relatively modern fruit and is thought to be a cross between a pomelo and sweet orange. Toss grapefruit segments through seafood or green salads, or mix with campari to make a refreshing sorbet or granita. To Prepare: Like most citrus, the membrane pith are bitter. To remove them, use a small knife to slice off all the peel and pith and cut between the membranes to remove the segments. Or simply cut the fruit in half, sprinkle with sugar and flash under the grill, then scoop out the flesh with a spoon. To Store: Store for three weeks in the crisper of the fridge or about one week at room temperature.
