Offering a balance of sweet and tart flavor, Texas grapefruits and Texas oranges offer a lot of flavor to food and drinks in a relatively low-calorie, nutrient-rich package.
  2.       While yes, fruit does contain sugar, it’s a source of naturally occurring sugar in the form of fructose. And when you eat the sweet taste of fruit, you’re also reaping the benefits of fiber, vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals. These components act in synergy to offer health rewards.

Add Texas onions to your dishes to pump up a recipe’s flavor and nutritional profile.
