Beautiful, colorful and known for its nutrient-packed interior, organically grown winter squash comes in a variety of shapes, sizes and varieties. 
 
However you slice it – halves or pieces – it's a great way to add vitamins, potassium and fiber to your diet.
 
Choose from 10 different kinds, including Butternut, Delicata, Spaghetti, Kabocha, Acorn and more.
 
 
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 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.
 
 
Juicy, seedless and easy-to-peel, these heirloom navels are the perfect orange for snacking. 
 
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, premium orange. 
 
Toss one into your bag when you are on the go, or slice and serve with breakfast. 
 
 
Full of texture and flavor, these versatile leafy greens make meals magnificent. 
 
To prepare chard, wash the leaves and pat dry, then remove stems and main veins. Roll leaves lengthwise and slice into ribbons. Sauté in a little oil with a pinch of crushed red pepper, cooking until tender, then add a spritz of lemon juice for a simple side. Or add uncooked chard to soups and salads!
 
A nutritional powerhouse, chard is packed with vitamin K, which helps transport calcium throughout the body, promoting strong bones and circulation.
 
Choose Red, Green or Rainbow.
 
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.
