Juicy, seedless and easy-to-peel, navels are the perfect orange for snacking. Toss one in your bag when you are on the go, or slice and serve with breakfast.

The folks at family-owned Rising C Ranches don't pluck these "old line" heirloom oranges at the first sign of maturity the way many growers do. They wait until the sugar increases and the fruit reaches optimum flavor. It's a risky way to grow them, but it produces a much tastier orange.

Easy-to-peel Mandarin oranges add a splash of color to seafood dishes and salads. They also make a sensational snack.

Try our recipe for Chicken Seychelles, a flavorful South African dish that features sweet Mandarin oranges and savory spices.

Loaded with vitamin C, these beauties bring a touch of sunshine to even the cloudiest days.

Nature's candy, fresh pineapple satisfies even the strongest sweet craving.

Great for young bodies and the young-at-heart, pineapple is rich in manganese, a trace mineral that promotes strong, healthy bones. Create a tropical salsa for fish, or add it to salads, smoothies and baked goods.

Did you know: Hawaii might be famous for this delicious tropical fruit, but its true origin comes from lesser known Brazil and Paraguay. Named by English explorers for its resemblance to a pinecone and its juicy apple-like center, the pineapple has been a symbol of hospitality for centuries.

Grown in the Northwest, these pink beauties are a natural cross between Golden Delicious and Lady Williams varieties. With a distinctive sugar-acid balance, Pink Ladies taste both tangy and sweet. Tightly packed cells make them firm with a long storage life and a tendency to stay bright white when sliced.

Try shredding Pink Lady apples into traditional recipes for added moisture and flavor. Simply add one apple to cornbread or spice cake mix, reducing standard liquid by 1 to 2 T. Enjoy!

Color your life healthy!

With their artfully shaped glossy exteriors and fleshy insides, bell peppers are loaded with nutrients. Packed with vitamins A, B1, B6, C, E and K, these beauties also contain fiber, folate and potassium. A wonderful combination of tangy taste and crunchy texture, they are a healthy way to add color to your meals. Slice them for snacks, stir-fries or fajitas.

Choose Red, Yellow or Orange.
