Mangoes and other healthy winter fruits

Mangoes and other healthy winter fruits
BY MARGARET MORGAN
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

Are you hungry for the fresh fruits and vegetables that flourish in farmers' markets during the summer months? Do not despair during these chilly — and sometimes very snowy — February doldrums! There are lots of luscious choices to satisfy your sweet tooth while replenishing your body with healthy vitamins and nutrients.

Fruits from around the world replenish our palates and satisfy our desire for sweets. There are clementines, tangelos, the sweetest seedless Cara Cara oranges, ruby red grapefruit, mangoes and much more. The pièce de resistance of winter fruits are the more exotic, tantalizing fruits that come from the southern hemisphere.

Currently in local produce departments at specialty markets like Sickles Market in Little Silver, are beautiful, luscious fruits from as far away as New Zealand and Chile. Succulent little Green Gage plums are perfect to plop in your mouth for a sweet, health treat on-the-go. Another delicious plum is the lemon plum that has the same semi-firm yellow texture as our summer red plums. At this time of year all stone fruit is coming from the southern hemisphere. In the summer months, we have lemon plums from California.
