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.

Juicy and seedless, these heirloom navels are the perfect orange for snacking. Toss one into your bag when you are on the go, or slice and serve with breakfast.

Extra sweet during winter, kale earns its superfood reputation from its abundant vitamins and calcium. Use it to create soups, salads and crunchy baked chips. Or try our online recipes for Pumpkin Kale and Chorizo Frittata or Beef Fillet with Bourbon and Mushroom Sauce on Kale and Roasted Potatoes.

Versatile, nutritious and delicious! Choose from Red, Green or Lacinato.

Storage tip: Keep unwashed kale refrigerated in an airtight container 3-4 days. To revive limp kale, simply trim the stems and soak in tepid water for 5 minutes.

Loaded with flavonoids, fiber and vitamins C and K, pears make a smart snack and a wonderful addition to recipes. Chop and add them to salads or muffins, or create our online recipe for Champagne Poached Pears Stuffed with Candied Pecans and Blue Cheese to celebrate the New Year. Choose from Bosc, Comice, D’Anjou or Red.

Tip: Keep unripe pears in a basket at room temperature or wrap in paper to ripen. Once their surface yields to gentle pressure, they are ready to eat.

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.
