Winter Superfoor Alert: Blood Oranges
Also known as moro oranges, this dramatically hued fruit is usually available from January until April. Their color comes from anthocyanin, the same disease-fighting antioxidant pigment found in blueberries, red wine and plums. They may be small, but each orange packs nearly a full day's worth of vitamin C.
