The origin of the grapefruit is not known for sure. It was first described in 1750 by Griffith Hughes, who called it the forbidden fruit of Barbados. In 1814, John Lunan (Hortus Jamaicensis) mentioned the grapefruit as a variety of lemon of a different size with a thin, tough and soft skin that is pale yellow in colour.
The main components of grapefruit are some volatile essences, carbohydrates, mineral salts, pectins and vitamins A, B and C.
