[Yakson House] Let me introduce Melogold/healthbenefits/grapefruit

The weather is cloudy and it will be raining anytime soon this week. 

Some people feel down and emotional on rainy days. 

They also feel more tired than usual and every little thing becomes a hassle.  

So, I would like to introduce you a fruit that is packed with Vitamin C which will take 

away your tiredness!

Have you heard about Melogold?

I know most of you haven't heard about it. 

The Melogold Grapefruit is a cross between a Pummelo and a White Grapefruit. 

It was first developed at the University of California, Riverside by Drs. Cameron and 


This one has skin much thicker than a regular grapefruit, is nearly seedless, and 

extremely juicy and sweet. 

How sweet? So sweet you won't need to add any sugar, even if you are a sugar 

sprinkling grapefruit eater.
