The grapefruit (Citrus paradisi) is a subtropical citrus tree known for its sour to semi-sweet, somewhat bitter fruit. Grapefruit is a hybrid originating in Barbados as an accidental cross between two introduced species, sweet orange (C. sinensis) and pomelo or shaddock (C. maxima), both of which were introduced from Asia in the seventeenth century. Grapefruit contains high levels of vitamin C and a component called limonene. The essential oil has shown repellent and insecticidal properties. Its therapeutic properties also include antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and antioxidant.
