Cocktail Grapefruit

Citrus x paradise ‘Cocktail’

  • Also called Mandelo
  • Wonderfully fragrant flowers
  • Easy to grow and loves full sun
  • Makes a great privacy screen when planted in rows


Actually, a hybrid of Mandarin cultivar and Pumelo, the Cocktail Grapefruit also goes by the name “Mandelo” which is a combination of the names of the parent fruits. The fruit itself is large, similar in color to a pink grapefruit yet sweeter and juicier than standard grapefruits. It also has a much milder, low-acid flavor and can be eaten or juiced easily. This very unique sweet fruit is not readily found in your local grocery store so growing your own is a premium!

Like most other citrus varieties, Cocktail Grapefruit trees flourish in full sun, and once established, will require only medium watering. These are attractive medium to large size trees with large evergreen leaves intermixed with large yellow fruit that adds a welcoming effect into any landscape. Adding to their functionality is the burst of amazingly aromatic blossoms that arrive in spring. Citrus keep leaves all year so they’re also good as a privacy screen or even planted in rows for a fruit-producing hedge.
