The Welsh botanist priest Griffiths Hughes was the first to tell the world about grapefruit in 1750. He called the fruit “forbidden fruit”. Later, the grapefruit was called “little sheddock” because of its resemblance to the pomelo, which was then called sheddock (after the English captain Sheddock, who brought it to the island of Barbados in the 17th century), and in 1814 in Jamaica, traders renamed the fruit to grapefruit. It is an occasional hybrid of a pomelo and an orange [5]. After 1880, industrial production of this crop began to grow rapidly in the United States, then in the Caribbean, Brazil, Israel and South Africa). In the 20th century, grapefruit took a leading position in the world fruit market.
