Three navel varieties

In the produce department

Is there a better antidote to winter doldrums than sweet navel oranges? They can brighten a cold, gray morning like sunshine itself. Arriving when we’re most susceptible to sniffling and sneezing, these citrus varieties are natural cold fighters, boasting excellent amounts of vitamin C and A.

In addition to the traditional navel orange, known as the “Washington” variety and grown for us by Rich Johansen of Johansen Ranch in Orland, Calif., we’ll have Heirloom navels (the “original” navel) and Cara Cara navels from Lisle Babcock of Deer Creek Heights Ranch in Porterville, Calif. The Cara Cara has reddish-pink flesh and is lower in acidity, with a sweet flavor that has overtones of raspberries and strawberries.

When selecting citrus, choose fruit that is heavy for its size, indicating a higher concentration of juice. Try our recipe for Mixed Winter Citrus and Avocado Salad with Cilantro and Mint.
