Citrus

Citrus includes many varieties of vibrant tree fruit such as oranges, lemons, grapefruit, limes, tangerines, and pomelos – all high in vitamin C, calcium, folate, and potassium. Some other fun citrus varieties to find at our markets include tangelos, kumquats, and citron.

Kumquats are tiny little tart, yet sweet morsels that you can pop in your mouth, rind and all! If you like to jam or make sweets, keep an eye out for some citron, such as the funky Buddha’s Hand.

All varieties of tasty winter citrus are full of vitamin C and calcium!
