Did you know that grapefruit, cauliflower, and bell peppers contain more vitamin C than oranges?

We rounded up these fun facts about the fruits + vegs in season at Publix this month (plus some tasty recipes, too):

🍊 Grapefruit

  • Once considered a novelty, “grapefruit” got its name from the grape-like clusters it grows in.
  • Florida grows 60% of the US’ grapefruits, making the state the nation’s top producer.
  • Make it: Grapefruit and Ricotta Salad

🍚 Cauliflower

🫑 Bell peppers

  • Red and yellow bell peppers are overly ripe (and sweeter) green bell peppers. Bonus: Paprika is made from red bell peppers.
  • Bell peppers are not hot because they don’t contain capsaicin — the compound that makes hot peppers hot.
  • Make it: Jamaican-Style Pepper Steak
