Currently, the USDA National Nutrient Database contains nutrient data on the following citrus crops: • Limes • Grapefruit (pink, red and white from California, Arizona and Florida) • Lemons • Oranges (Valencias and navels from California and Florida) • Tangerines • Pummelo • Clementines Because there are significant differences in phytochemical content of newer varieties of citrus (e.g., Cara Cara oranges, blood oranges), nutrient data on these crops should be added to the database to enhance the quality of data collected for national nutrient monitoring as well as for research programs.
