Product Background
A hybrid of the pomelo (Citrus maxima) and the sweet orange (Citrus sinensis), grapefruit is more than just a part
of your breakfast! The fruit likely originated from Jamaica and was first popularized for consumption in the West
Indies before spreading to America and throughout citrus-growing areas. It’s now produced in locations
throughout the world, including the United States, South Africa, Brazil, and Israel. The grapefruit tree can grow to
be quite large, reaching up to 20 feet tall. It has dense foliage, and the grape-like clusters of the fruit are the source
of the plant’s name.

Scientific name: Citrus paradisi
Botanical family: Rutaceae
Additional Names: When it was discovered, grapefruit was called the “forbidden fruit.”
Region(s) grown: South Africa, California , Mexico
Plant part used: Rind

YL Region: Most Young Living Grapefruit essential oil comes from Mexico.
