Fruits of Spring: Nature's Candy And Sweet Gift

Spring comes bearing the promise of a fresh start after winter. And just as flora starts to rejuvenate and regain life, seasonal Spring fruits begin to ripen and become ready for the picking.

It's as if the Earth is rewarding mankind for enduring winter's long, cold nights - and the price is a bountiful harvest of juicy, succulent fruits, nature's candy as some would say.

Packed with nutrients, Spring fruits prepare the body for more outdoor activity now that winter is gone and everyone can come out to enjoy the beauty of nature springing back to life.
