The Importance of Citrus

The Importance of Citrus

The last few weeks we have been getting tons of fresh Homegrown White Grapefruit here in the office from one of our Pastors. OH MY GOODNESS they are so yummy and juicy. I have been juicing them and adding in Chia seeds (my new fav, I’ll tell ya later about them)

Anyhoo one of my Friends talked about this blog “Life With Greens” http://www.lifewithgreens.com/oranges  over instagram. It’s a winner & Sarah just happened to post about citrus just the other day. I thought you would like to read about the goodness of citrus, not only to our taste buds but also for our health.

Produce Tip

Navel Oranges

Navels are considered the finest eating orange in the world, with a sweet and juicy flavor, these seedless oranges peel and segment easily. 

Navels are known as the “winter orange” because they are available only between October and May, with peak season January through March. The Fresh Market sources our oranges from California during the winter, and from Australia during the summer, so you always have the freshest navel oranges.

Fun Fact: Did you know, an orange tree can grow up to 30 feet fall and live for over 100 years?
