Kono, in reading your question, which I failed to answer, yes there are hundreds of varieties of fruit which seem the same.

Grapfruit for example...the example you gave, they have subtly different properties. Lemons sre more pronounced as the two most common varieties (here in Ca.) are Eureka (typical common lemon) and Meyers. The meyers is kinda funny looking, thick skinned, and can be sweet to the point of not seeming like a lemon.

Meyers seem like they were invented to be placed next to a Vodka tree...

Oranges varieties are more different than each other...The Navel Orange was a natural hybred found in Brazil by some American Missionaries. It's also called the Washington Orange because for a while you had to write to Washington DC to get them.

The thing that makes Oranges even more curious is that thier fruit comes ripe at much different times of year depending on the variety.

A large old lemon tree however can have fruit on it all year...nice for the drinker, bad for the farmer.

Sorry...shit, I've done it again.
