When the weather turns warm, nothing compares to the taste of luscious melons. Slice several varieties and toss in a few more of your favorite fruits, such as pineapple, watermelon and blueberries to create a colorful, taste-tempting salad that welcomes the sun-kissed days of summer.

Sweet and succulent, peaches and nectarines beckon warm, sunny days.

These golden fruits please more than the palate, they also help your heart, providing nearly 25% of the daily recommended intake of potassium, a mineral important for maintaining healthy blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Enjoy whole as a snack, or halve and grill with balsamic vinegar, then sprinkle with crumbled blue cheese.
Enjoy the many health benefits from significant amounts of antioxidants and phytonutrients found in these dark, leafy greens. Loaded with nutrients that may protect against heart disease and cancer, these powerful veggies also boost your intake of fiber, vitamin C, folic acid, vitamin K, calcium, iron and potassium.

Sauté Red, Green or Rainbow chard with onions and garlic until greens are tender for a simple and delicious side!

Fresh, leafy 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.

Versatile, nutritious and delicious! Choose from Purple, 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.
