Look for grapefruit that has smooth skin and feels heavy for its size. Avoid buying grapefruit with soft spots or very thick and wrinkled skin.
Grapefruit can still be ripe even if there are green places on the skin.
If the peel is damaged, the inside of the grapefruit may still be good. Cut or peel to determine before throwing away.
