Specialty Fruit Calendar & Availability Availability

 

Kumquats

Sweet Limes
Availability: October through March

Sweet limes have a unique flavor because they have less acid than ordinary limes. They can be eaten like any ripe fruit, and with their sweet, mild flavor are ideal for juicing. They can also be sliced and added to water instead of lemon, added to a citrus salad for extra flavor, or can be substituted in instances that would normally call for a lime.

It is not known where or how the sweet lime originated, but it is thought to be a hybrid between a Mexican-type lime and a sweet lemon or sweet citron.

Jujubes
Availability: Mid-July through mid-August and mid-October through mid-November

The jujube is a little known fruit, but is gaining momentum in Western cultures for its high amount of vitamins and minerals. It contains 20 times the amount of vitamin C as citrus fruits. The fully mature fruit is entirely red. Shortly after becoming fully red, the fruit begins to soften and wrinkle. The fruit can be eaten after it becomes wrinkled, but most people prefer them during the interval between the yellow-green stage and the full red stage. At this stage the flesh is crisp and sweet, reminiscent of an apple.

The jujube fruit was regarded by Chinese Medical Practitioners as having exceptional medicinal properties. Over thousands of years, they used the jujube fruit as an integral part of their treatment.

 
Guavas
Availability: November through December

A true taste of the tropics, Guava are one of the best fruits available. Guavas are cholesterol, saturated fat, and sodium free, low in fat and calories and high in fiber. The edible rind of a guava contains 5 times more vitamin C than an orange. The seeds of a guava can be eaten and the taste is often described as a cross between pears and strawberries. The fruit is also often prepared as a dessert, in fruit salads.

Commercially, most are used in jams, jellies, and in guava paste.
