Mexico is the fourth biggest producer of grapefruit

Mexico is the fourth biggest producer of grapefruit in the world with a production of over 424 thousand tons, i.e. one in every 20 tons of grapefruits comes from the Mexican countryside, where the state of Veracruz leads its production.

According to information from the Ministry of Agriculture, this citrus fruit, which is a healthy product for consumption, is also used in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industry, as its aroma is used in the production of essential oils for aromatherapy.

The Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development, Fisheries and Food (Sagarpa) stated that there are different grapefruit varieties, which are classified by the color of its pulp (white, pink, and red).
