Clive Lewis

Gisborne, New Zealand

Grapefruit Grower

Originally known as ‘the forbidden fruit’, it wasn’t until the 1800′s that our much-loved grapefruit was called just that, due to the grape-like cluster in which its fruit grows. Sweet yet tart, grapefruit are a great source of vitamin C. They are also an essential ingredient in our Breakfast Marmalade and Marmalade & Ginger blends, where we use Gisborne-grown Morrison and Golden Special varietals.
