Texas Grapefruit & Orange sizes are determined by how many pieces of fruit fit in a 40 pound box (if 23 grapefruit fit in a box then the size is a “23”).
The sizes we currently offer are:
Texas Rio Red Grapefruit:
TX Fancy sizes: 23, 27, 32, 36, 40, 48 & 56
Choice sizes: 27, 32, 36, 40 & 48
TX Combo sizes: 48, 56, 64, 72, 88, 113 & 138
Choice sizes: 48, 56, 64, 72, 88, 113 & 138
Grading is determined by how the outer skin looks. Texas Fancy Grapefruit & Texas Combo Oranges have minimal scarring where as Choice Grapefruit & Oranges have noticeably more. Remember these marks are just on the peel and have no affect on the inside quality at all.
We now have one of the most innovative packing systems in the world. Our new state of the art packing line creates a modernized process along with smart system solutions which allows us to pack more efficiently in order to satisfy our customers. In addition we are able to reduce our expenses by improving the accuracy and consistency while reducing the variations and costs of grading by hand which will greatly benefit our growers. The use of robotics, computers and integrated automations are incorporated to serve the operational efficiency and to address the increasing demands of worker and food safety concerns. It also includes a high tech imaging system to identify product blemishes and imperfections. Multiple images are captured in the machine of each piece of fruit for the greatest levels of accuracy. Automated packing machines reduce the high costs of labor by reducing the number of employees and significantly increasing the number of cartons packed per hour.
