Where do I find white grapefruit?
I have no problems finding pink or ruby grapefruit, but it's been months since I've been able to purchase a white grapefruit. I've looked everywhere:
- Fiesta Farms;
- Fruit places on Roncesvalles;
- Fruit places in St. Lawrence Market;
- Fruit places on Bloor between Ossington and Lansdowne.
I used to get them at the grocery store in the Manulife, but they haven't had any since they opened following the renovations.
Did something happen to the white grapefruit, like some kind of disease or something?

Yes Virginia, there is a season. wait till Xmas. Better yet, wait to February- March. The pinks are imported from the southern hemisphere. Probably not enough demand at the premium price for imports, and not so good grapefruit at that.
Forget about foie gras on Pacific salmon. Just seasonal is just fine.
