2014 Holiday Gift Guide: TexaSweet Grapefruit

12 days of gift giving ideas.


Day4We’re turning the spotlight on food-centric gifts over the next 12 days leading up to Christmas. Fruit, coffee, cheese, kitchen gadgets, various cuts of meat, jellies, cakes, even specialty olive oils will be part of the mix. Whether you’re looking to enhance your holiday spread, or surprise your favorite uncle (who also happens to be a fantastic cook), we’ve got something to whet your appetite.

Nonprofit corporation TexaSweet has been promoting the sale of fresh citrus grown in Texas since 1966. The company lists several grapefruit and orange suppliers on its website, all of which are putting together fruit-filled gift baskets for the holidays. Seriously, who wouldn’t love a box of tangy, vitamin-packed grapefruits for Christmas. You can sprinkle them with sugar and scoop them into your mouth for breakfast, mix them into a winter salad, and squeeze their juice into any number of holiday cocktails. ‘Tis the season for citrus.
