Organic Citrus for the Holidays

During recent trips to Hannaford’s and the Brattleboro Food Co-op in Brattleboro, VT, our Savvy Organic Shopper found competitive prices on citrus fruits for the holidays. She came across organic pink grapefruit priced at 2.99 per pound. The conventional equivalent was priced at $1.69 per pound, but if she purchased organic pink grapefruits in a 4-pound bag, she paid only $1.74 per pound. If you do the same, that means that for only 5 cents more per pound, you get to enjoy a grapefruit that comes with government-backed assurance that it has been grown without toxic and persistent pesticides and fertilizers. That’s no squeeze!
