Zest for Success

Bright in flavor and color, satsumas are an easy pop of hydration that can be enjoyed at home or on-the-go. Due to Hurricane Ida, citrus is rolling in a little late this year. Don’t fret - Star Nursery, an orchard that started back in the late 60s in Belle Chasse, is back and with a bounty of citrus. Be sure to drop in for a bag of New Orleans’ favorite fall treat as Star Nursery will be at all three of our weekly markets. Citrus fruits contain a variety of minerals and vitamins the body needs (such as B vitamins, magnesium, copper, and potassium, to name a few), and they are a great source of fiber. A few satsumas contain all the Vitamin C you need in a day, strengthening your immune system and keeping your skin smooth. On top of that, citrus is rich in plant compounds like flavonoids and carotenoids (antioxidants), and essential oils. Besides the health benefits, citrus, and satsumas in particular, are a sweet and healthy way to snack your way through the fall season, and easy for little fingers to peel, providing perhaps the most convenient kid snack there is.
