Citrus Tip: Keep one of each type of citrus fruit in the freezer in it own an air-tight container so you can have fabulous zest year round.

I always look forward to these fruits in the winter months! We actually use them for stocking stuffers as well at Christmas...

Oranges and grapefruit are my favorite! It is a shame that the Florida citrus greening, a disease that has affected nearly every orange grove in the state.The fruit on affected branches is small and bitter. Even worse, the disease eventually kills the tree. I hope the experts can fix this problem because I don't want to buy oranges and grapefruit from another state or far away places. I am thankful to have an orange in my regular eating plan.

Love Citrus. Just please be aware that grapefruit interferes with or can magnify the effects of many medications & prescriptions, esp. blood pressure meds.

Zesting is one of the best affordable tips I know. It is virtually free because you would end up throwing the fruit peel away any way. It is a great way to add taste to many dishes. I love citrus zest on vegetables, fresh salads, baked goods or even in pancake batter. If you don't mind the sugar you can make candied citrus peel.

Great article, assessing these fruits completely. Found myself studying and comparing them in the charts, weighing my preferences with the nutritional merits of choices. I love Valencia oranges, and was surprised that they have much less Vitamin C than do Navels! Thank you for comprehensive information!
