Grapefruit - Leaves


Grapefruit leaves are light green when they are young and darken as they mature.  They are 3 to 5 inch long evergreen leaves that broaden at the base of the leaf and narrow at the apex (tip).  A unique characteristic of many citrus leaves are winged petioles that overlap the leaf base.  Grapefruit leaves have large winged petioles compared to many other citrus species.
