Spring Fruit Guide

How to choose the best fruit of the spring season.

Rhubarb

Rhubarb is often called "pie plant" in the U.S. because it’s so closely identified with strawberry-rhubarb pie.

What You Get: Low in calories and full of fiber, potassium and vitamin C, rhubarb also contains catechin, a flavonol that may contribute to heart health.

Shopping Tip: Look for bright, crisp stalks with minimal pitting, dryness and other visible damage.

Storage Tips: Refrigerate rhubarb in a plastic bag for up to a week. Freeze diced rhubarb in an airtight container for up to 6 months.
