This week’s Astro Biz is Tropic Moon Grapefruit. Tropic Moon fruits are produced by the Edinburg Citrus Association based in Edinburg, Texas, which is in the very southern tip of the state near Brownsville. The “Rio Star” grapefruit is known for its red fruit. Tropic Moon also produces oranges.
We don’t want you to get the wrong impression, as though Seattle Astronomy is turning over a new leaf. After all, last week’s Astro Biz was a produce stand, but don’t be fooled into thinking we’ve adopted an excessively healthy lifestyle. Truth be told, we don’t much care for grapefruit, and spotted this box while sipping an adult beverage in the parlor car on a recent Amtrak Coast Starlight train trip. We’re always on the lookout for the next Astro Biz!
