48 cans, 5.5 oz each, about $20 if you can find it. Go online and search. Supplies are limited.

It's maddening that pink juice is all around us but white juice is not.

Another option, from my past... Currently $3.26 each bottle from Jet.com plus $5.99 shipping. Ships free if you order $35 or more. This used to be available from Walmart using their free website-to-store shipping, but at the moment they're only carrying the canned version of the product from a third party, and only one pack of the cans are left in stock at the moment. The Ocean Spray products feature juice from concentrate and water - pretty clean stuff. They are pasteurized so definitely a second-tier option way behind the awesomeness of fresh fruit juice. I really dislike the effect of pasteurization on juice flavor, but that's a requirement to extend shelf life from packaging to shipping to sales.

Watch those web searches -- "white grapefruit" often yields "white grape" products in search results.

At least there's some encouraging news on the grapefruit front.

It sounds like Florida growers have made a fantastic recovery from a few years ago.

Thanks, Ace. I've been contemplating those 5.5 cans, but I can't decide if I can use up 48 can in a reasonable amount of time.

Perhaps because of that good crop, we now have fresh ones in the grocery store here. One store chain always keeps them in season. Woo hoo!

Fresh ones seem pretty non-existant now but I have a friend with a tree, new crop will come in December. I was able to find bottled white at Von's past week, Von's "Signature" brand. Not bad for bottled juice

Since Vons and Safeway are owned by Albertsons, I'm pretty sure that Signature brand white grapefruit juice is the same stuff that my local store discontinued. I thought it was pretty good, too (considering I've never tested the fresh-squeezed stuff).

From August until mid-October I was finding white grapefruit in the organic produce department of the larger Kroger stores here in the greater Cincinnati area. They seem to be gone now, but I can find light pink grapefruit there. In the regular produce section, however, there's only the wretched red variety to be found.

Whew. The store brand (pasteurized, from-concentrate) white grapefruit juice has returned to my local shelves, too.
