Everyone loves these stem-and-leaf Satsuma Mandarins! So what's the great "ap-peel," you ask?
 
Not only do they appear as if they were just picked straight from the tree, they make a simple easy-to-eat snack – proof that good things come in small packages. These sweet, seedless citruses are also great in recipes, from salads to seafood dishes.
 
Loaded with vitamin C, they bring a touch of sunshine to even the cloudiest days.

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. Rich in manganese, a trace mineral that promotes strong, healthy bones, this versatile fruit is perfect for salads, salsas and marinades. Or use it to create an amazing pineapple upside-down cake. No matter how you slice it, this tropical treat is hard to beat.

For a refreshing drink: In a blender, add pineapple, low-fat milk, a splash of coconut milk and a handful of ice cubes and puree until smooth. Enjoy!

 

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

Loaded with antioxidant-rich vitamin C, these beauties help neutralize free radicals in the body. They also contain a healthy dose of calcium for bone strength and beta-carotene, which supports eye health and the immune system.

For a satisfying meal, go online and try our recipe for Chicken Seychelles, a flavorful South African dish that features Mandarin oranges and savory spices. Or peel and add sweet segments to fresh, leafy greens, topped with sliced almonds and dried cranberries.

Loaded with flavonoids, fiber and vitamins C and K, pears make a smart snack and an excellent addition to recipes. Chop and add them to salads or muffins, or create our online recipes for Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Pears or Pear-Pumpkin Spice Cake, featuring wonderful fall flavors. Choose Bartlett, Bosc, D’Anjou or Red Starkrimson.

Did you know: Although pears mature on the tree, they ripen best off the tree. Wrap in paper or store in a basket or bowl at room temperature until ready to eat.

An American variety, the Jonagold apple has a balanced blend of both its parents’ flavors, offering the sweet-tart taste of the Jonathan apple and the aromatic honey-like scent of the Golden Delicious. Large, crisp and juicy, it’s perfect for desserts. Use them to make pies, cobblers, muffins or applesauce. Or pair them with robust cheeses on a sandwich, pizza or cheese board. The possibilities are endless!
