Cool Citrus

Dull winter days are brightened up by this amazing display of citrus fruits at Chelsea Market's Manhattan Fruit Exchange in New York City.

Produce markets are exploding with bright citrus fruits right now, all ripe, ready and at their peak. It’s time to dive in! Go ahead, try a new cool citrus fruit a day to savor the season.

The Best Oranges
If you see a sign like this in your local produce market, know that it is time to take action. Honey Bell Oranges from Florida are sweeter and juicier than your normal, run-of-the-mill oranges and not to be missed. Also, if you have a recipe that calls for blood oranges (like Mario’s Blood Orange Salad), now is the time to track it down and whip it up.

Florida Honey Bells are here, now!

Sweet Meyer Lemons
These sweeter-than-normal lemons are thought to be a cross between a lemon and an orange, and they pop into produce markets late fall through early spring. They’re great in lemon sweets, like tarts and lemon bars, but on Cooking Channel’s new show Week in a Day, Rachael uses them in a savory dish perfect for cold winter nights: Lemon-Olive Chicken with Pine Nut Couscous.

Rachael uses sweet Meyer Lemons for her spiced Lemon-Olive Chicken recipe.

Key Limes
These are so elusive, grab a handful when you get a chance and take the opportunity to bake up a classic: Key Lime Pie. Or, for a spicy twist, try Nadia G’s Key Lime Habanero Cheesecake.

Key Limes are smaller than normal limes, so be sure to grab extra.

What Do You Do With Pomelos?
Yes, they’re monsters! What to do with them? In the Bill’s Holiday episode The Tropical North, Bill Granger makes them into a salad, mixing segmented pomelos with butter lettuce, large chunks of avocado, cooked shrimp, chopped shallots, cilantro, olive oil, lime juice, salt and a little pepper. Looks and sounds delicious!

Pomelos are huge, monster citrus fruits. Follow Bill Granger's lead and try making one into a citrus salad.

What’s your favorite seasonal citrus fruit?
