What Causes Punky Grapefruit?

sherry added on February 2, 2013 | Answered

My grapefruit tree is 8 yrs old and produces grapefruits that are not sweet and the fruit when cut open is punky and not sweet. It looks healthy and we fertilize every three months with a citrus fertilizer. We have a sprinkler system that waters the trees 3 xs weekly in the hot season and 1 weekly during winter months. Could it be too much water causing the problem?
