Growing a Grapefruit from Seed

I have a grapefruit that was started from seed, I do not know the variety. It is about 18 inches in height now and pretty healthy. The leaves are like a double leaf, in that there is a smaller section near the stem then a larger leaf beyond that. Currently it is in a 4-6 inch pot indoors, but it is exceeding it's home now. I can't just let it die so I would like to know how to care for it and help it live.

I bought a house with a grapefruit tree that had never given fruit in 7 years. We did not get fruit until 3 years later. But now, 7 years after that, I usually fill at least 15 of those 30 gallon tubs each spring. I take the fruit to school to school for my students and parents to have. I play rock 'n roll all summer long in the back yard while I'm in the pool. I'm sure that's what makes it produce so much fruit.

Double leaves? That is a key feature of a very particular and exciting citrus tree: a kaffir lime! The leaves, with their distinct doubling feature, makes it identifiable.

The fruit is sometimes used, but the leaves are its main feature, highly aromatic and used in Asian cooking.
