TexasSweet, a company that markets Texas citrus is located in Mission, Texas in Hidalgo County. Maybe they can help, I found some information at http://www.texasweet.com/grapefruit.html
The first commercial shipment of citrus - packed in onion crates - left the Lower Rio Grande Valley of South Texas in 1920. It was about the time of the great stock market crash in 1929 when an accidental discovery of red grapefruit growing on a pink grapefruit tree gave rise to the Texas Red Grapefruit Industry. In the late 1920's and early 1930's redder bud mutations were found in numerous groves. Each new finding was named for the grower who found it.
