Deep in the heart of the Rio Grande Valley we have made a commitment to put uncompromised quality into every succulent red Rio Star grapefruit we grow.  We ARE the grapefruit specialists, concentrating on growing and shipping only the best Rio Stars..... no candy, nuts, jelly or unrelated products just unsurpassable grapefruit! 

Granny Clare's Citrus at Rio Pride Orchards is nestled along a narrow strip of rich, sandy loam soil in an area know as Adams Gardens...appropriately reminiscent of a place in Paradise!  Here, in the restful repose of these ideal soil conditions, the juicy sweet, red Rio Pride grapefruit are gently bathed in South Texas sunshine.  The result is sweetness that is far superior to grapefruit found in any other state or country in the world.  Every package you choose is filled with hand-selected red Rio Stars in either  the "Gift Fancy" or "Family Choice" Packaging. 

Whether you choose Gift Fancy or Family Choice presentation your package will contain only the very best of crop from the trees surrounding our home and shed. These are simply two different type of packaging for the same premium red grapefruit known as Rio Star.

Gift Fancy

Selections are packed using our prettiest grapefruit nestled in beds of cellophane with a pattern of tissue wrapped fruit and a brief printed message you compose, or your won personal card or note may be enclosed.  Also, the outside sticker will show that this gift is from you.

Family Choice

Selections will contain the same delicious red grapefruit with none of the "extras."  No card, spoons, cello or tissue; however, the outside label and bright sticker will show the name of the sender as you designate.
