I was going to have a snack before bed tonight. And as I normally prefer pretty foods, I decided to photograph it. Ok all of that is true but the preferring pretty foods part. I pretty much eat anything that tastes good. So ever wonder why the grapefruit is named that. So did I. And though it took me a while to find the answer... mainly because I got distracted by reading the first link... did you know that some folks in Florida tried to change its name to stimulate sales in the 60's.. sorry. Although it took me a while to find the answer I finally did... on the second Google link. Apparently it is as simple as it grows in bunches like grapes.

We, as a society, really should settle on better reasons for adopting a name before just going with it.
