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.


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!

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.
