Yes, literally I dig out grapefruits almost every day. I love them, I always have in fact growing up I credited eating a giant box as the reason I grew 6 inches one year (can we say high waters?). Now my kids love them (and unfortunately they are not yet skilled enough to dig their own very successfully with the treacherous grapefruit tool) So add to my list of mom skills-the DD- Designated Digger. I bought these giant melon sized ones Friday at our local farmstand. They are pure heaven, so sweet like the ones of my grandparents trees in Arizona. But I have a beef with grapefruits- always they squirt juice on my counter (leaving little sticky spots that bane of my motherly existence), on my clothes, and in my eyes- why do I put up with this kind of abuse. Oh the lure of succulent citrus! Must I get a designated grapefruit apron and wear safety goggles?? The one good thing about when they aren't in season I buy the Del Monte Fruit Naturals in the refrigerated jar- no digging but I pay for the added luxury. I have to say If I were to create my own planet world I would create a lot more varieties of grapefruits (self digging of course) and totally extinct the rutabaga & the Brussels sprouts.
