Excellent source of vitamin C and a good source of fiber and folate.
What to Look For:
Look for a thick, bumpy, orange-green skin. They should be heavy for their size and free of bruises and brown spots.
Easy Storage and Preparation:
They will keep at room temperature for up to several days and a week or more if refrigerated.
Use like you would a grapefruit; their flesh is sweeter and has very few seeds. Great added to fruit or green salads.
NOTE: An excellent source contains more than 20 percent of the Daily Value for that nutrient. A good source contains between 10 and 19 percent of the Daily Value.
