Grapefruit is a must have fruit in our house. Grapefruit is at its best from early winter to spring. A good grapefruit doesn't have to be perfect in color. Skin discoloration, scratches or scales may affect the appearance of a grapefruit, but they do not impact the taste. A grapefruit should be heavy for its size and firm, yet slightly springy when gentle pressure is applied. Here are some of the produce deals around central Ohio for the week of November 29.
