Grapefruit is a bit of a botanical mystery. It appears to be the hybrid of
a sour fruit known as a shaddock and a sweet orange. However, there are no existing
records to show that there was a deliberate hybridization of the two plants.
So it remains a mystery as to whether it was deliberately bred or was a product
of Nature's own type of natural hybridization. First cultivated in the West
Indies back in the 18th century, the United States is now the world's largest
producer of grapefruit anywhere. Therapeutically, grapefruit has energizing
and cleansing properties, plus has a unique ability to aid fat dissolution.
