Dark pink in color, Flame Grapefruit is richer in color than the classic Ruby Red. Known for its juicy flavor, flame is a particularly sweet variety. Very cold hardy compared to other grapefruit varieties such as Star Ruby. It is grown in large pots inside the house in many locations. This is the ideal tree to grow on a patio or inside the house in a well-lit room. It needs less summer heat than other grapefruit cultivars to ripen. The peel is thin and the flesh is dark pink.Very juicy and sweet.

Self-fertile.

Height at maturity: 10-12 feet.

Harvest: November/May.

Instructions for growing in pots (recommended): 

Leave the plant outside between May and October but bring it inside between October and the end of April, until the spring frosts are over. Place in a warm place on your land protected from the winds and place in full sun. Enlarge the pot every 2 years as needed depending on growth and add fertilizer of your choice as needed. Can easily withstand a semi-dormant winter period in a cool place between 8° and 14°C... Ex: semi-heated garage. Finally...Remember to acclimatize your plant to the sun in spring by not placing it directly in full sun for the first few days but going there gradually otherwise the leaves will burn in the sun in a few days.
