Or add these succulent spears to risotto, quiche, pasta and more. They also make excellent appetizers when wrapped with prosciutto or phyllo. Enjoy every delicious bite!

You're bound to bring back childhood memories when you bite into these big, beautiful heirloom oranges. This variety comes from family-owned Rising C Ranches, grown by people who believe that waiting makes for a more flavorful fruit. They don't pluck these "old line" heirloom oranges at the first sign of maturity the way many growers do. They wait until the sugar surges for optimum taste. Juicy and seedless, it's quite possibly the perfect orange. Slice and serve for breakfast, or enjoy as a midday snack.


Color your life healthy!

With their artfully shaped glossy exteriors and fleshy insides, bell peppers are loaded with nutrients.

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.

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.
