Florida White Grapefruit

Thin skinned, plump and juicy. White Grapefruit is the classic favorite of the locals who know how flavorful and sweet they are. And they’re sure to become your favorite too.

Blood Orange

Blood oranges, which are very widely grown in Spain and Italy (as “sangüina” or “sanguigna”, respectively) are characterized by dark red pigmentation. They are considered, in general, the most delicious juice orange.

Grapefruit

The grapefruit (Citrus × paradisi), is a subtropical citrus tree known for its sour fruit, an 18th-century hybrid first bred in Barbados. When found, it was named the “forbidden fruit.” The fruit has become popular since the late 19th century; before that it was only grown as an ornamental plant. The United States quickly became a major producer of the fruit, with groves in Florida, Texas, Arizona, and California. In Spanish, the fruit is known as toronja or pomelo.

Navel Orange

Navel oranges are characterized by the growth of a second fruit at the apex, which protrudes slightly and resembles a human navel. They are primarily used for eating, as the skin is thicker and easier to peel than a common orange. They are very popular and have a long growing season; in the United States, they are available from November through April, with peak supplies in January, February and March.

Honey Tangerine

Tangerines have been cultivated for over 3,000 years in China. Honey tangerines are the most widely grown tangerine, are easily peeled, much like a Satsuma mandarin, but have more flavor and grow true from the seeds.

Fallglo Tangerines

Fall Glo tangerines are an early season variety with excellent flavor, with thin skin that peels so easily it almost jumps out of your hands. The taste is very sweet with a touch of tartness. The peel is a deep orange color.

Corn

Corn grows in “ears,” each of which is covered in rows of kernels that are then protected by the silk-like threads called “corn silk” and encased in a husk. Corn is known scientifically as Zea Mays. This moniker reflects its traditional name, maize, by which it was known to the Native Americans as well as many other cultures throughout the world. Although we often associate corn with the color yellow, it actually comes in host of different varieties featuring an array of different colors, including red, pink, black, purple, and blue.

Tomatoes

The tomato is the fruit of the plant Lycopersicon esculentum. (Botanically speaking, tomato is not only a fruit, but also a berry since it is formed from a single ovary.)
The French sometimes refer to the tomato as pomme d’amour, meaning “love apple,” and in Italy, tomato is sometimes referred to as “pomodoro” or “golden apple,” probably referring to tomato varieties that were yellow/orange/tangerine in color.

Regardless of its name, the tomato is a wonderfully popular and versatile food that comes in over a thousand different varieties that vary in shape, size, and color. There are small cherry tomatoes, bright yellow tomatoes, Italian pear-shaped tomatoes, and the green tomato, famous for its fried preparation in Southern American cuisine.
