Gold Nugget is mandarin variety named for its beautiful, bright, and bumpy rind. Their bright, sparkling orange interior is especially sweet. These delicious fruits are available mid-March through June. Combine it with nutrient-rich kale, plus celery for apple juice for flavor, and you have a mineral- and phytonutrient-packed smoothie with plenty of natural sugar to fuel your workout.
