Some really great deals, Carol. So cool you weighed that bag of grapefruit and found a 6.54 pound one. I love grapefruit.

Belinda, the scale was conveniently right there. I knew that by law, produce labeled "5 lbs" must minimally contain 5 lbs or more. Weights varied from 5.21 lbs to over a lb more. I got the heaviest bag : )
BTW-had the Scarlett's Texas red grapefruit this morning, so good!

I so miss grapefruit! It is not compatible with my heart medications. Pharmacist said I could eat it "occasionally" without harm, but mostly I just don't buy it anymore. Luckily, it's only grapefruit, so I can eat other citrus without problems.
