Growing in a large pot and doing great.  I let the fruit ripen this year to see what we are up for.  Allowed 4 to stay on, very heavy fruit, I'm surprised the branches supported them.

Label doesn't say what type of red grapefruit it is. It's struggling a bit - had to severely prune to get the framework right.

For feeding n spraying see lemon - meyer.

Aug 2010: it's doing well now and flowering. May let it keep one or two fruit at most.
