Fruits in the witner

What is your favourite fruit?
Among mine there are apples, strawberries, raspberries and blueberries.
So they are the best in the summer and then I can eat them all the time. But, there are quite a few fruits that are best in the winter and a few more that are considered to be good all year, so I never don’t let winter stop me from enjoying fresh fruit!

Of course, nowadays we can buy all the fruits year round in the supermarket but imported strawberries don't taste the same for me as these ones during the summer time.

But I am not worried about that as there are fruits which are delicious in the winter time.
Most citrus fruits such as orange, tangerines, clementines, mandarins, grapefruits,  are best in the winter. Citrus fruits contain vitamin C, potassium and folate.  Other fruits that are best in the winter include pears, and kiwi.  Pears are high in fiber and contain vitamins A, C, K, B2, B3, and B6.  Kiwi fruit actually has more vitamin C than citrus. 
Apples, bananas, lemons, limes and pineapples are good year round, so you can enjoy those fresh in the winter too.

So, what can you do with winter fruit?
I like eating them alone.  They make great, healthy snacks all by themselves. However, delicious apple pie, apple crumble are also good alternative for me.
How about you?Do you have any ideas for winter fruits?
