The folks at family-owned Rising C Ranches live among the groves where their oranges grow, and they limit the use of chemical fertilizers, herbicides and insect control. 
 
They don't pluck their "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 for a much tastier, premium orange. 
 
Juicy, seedless and easy-to-peel, these heirloom navels are perfect for snacking. Toss one into your bag or slice and serve with breakfast.

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 fantastic fruit is perfect for your holiday ham. 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!
 
 
Loaded with vitamin C, these beauties come from family-owned orchards, recognized for their sustainable farming practices. Seedless, easy-to-peel and packed with juicy goodness, Mandarin oranges add a touch of color and flavor to seafood dishes, baked goods and salads. They also make a sensational snack!
 
 
An outstanding source of lycopene, tomatoes contain powerful antioxidants. But it's the beautiful hues, terrific textures and fantastic flavors that define these old-fashioned favorites. Use them to create colorful salads, serve atop sandwiches or burgers, or drizzle with balsamic and enjoy with a variety of cheeses and crusty bread.
 
Pick from Marvel Stripe, Purple Cherokee, Black Russian, Brandywine, Lemon Boy and more.
 
Tip: Pick heirlooms that are somewhat firm to the touch, keep at room temperature, and enjoy within a couple days.
 
 
Versatile, nutritious and delicious, 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 recipe for Beef Fillet with Bourbon and Mushroom Sauce on Kale and Roasted Potatoes
 
Choose from Purple, Green or Italian 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.
