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.

Grown from seeds passed down from generation to generation, these tomatoes taste like the garden-fresh ones your grandparents enjoyed when they were kids.

Use them to create colorful salads, serve atop sandwiches or burgers, or drizzle with balsamic and enjoy with crusty bread.

Choose Marvel Stripe, Purple Cherokee, Black Russian, Brandywine, Lemon Boy and more.

Tip: Pick tomatoes that are somewhat firm to the touch, keep at room temperature, and enjoy within a couple days.


Blushing Pink Lady apples are the first apples to blossom and the last to be harvested. That extra time on the tree, along with a warm climate and rich, fertile soil give these apples their sweet taste, succulent crunch and famous color. Chop and add them to warm oatmeal with walnuts and honey, slice and serve alongside creamy soups, or enjoy with cheese and crackers as a midday snack. 
Tip: Best eaten fresh, you can store these beauties up to three months in your crisper.
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.
