It’s the perfect recipe for sunburns: work hard for a long time in the heat, then meet this beauty. Prickly pears are made immediately in front of your eyes everywhere you go. Imagine a desert plant that was initially present to provide nutrients and minerals to those passing by.

Winter Fruits

1- Oranges 

The almighty orange has to be at the top of our list as the best fruit for fighting that inevitable terrible cold. Oranges are high in vitamins A and C, potassium, and soluble fibre; which protect the body from viral infections, reduce the risk of kidney stones, cholesterol, and cancer.

Of course, the most effective way to enjoy the benefits of oranges is to eat them whole or in a tall glass of fresh, pure orange juice, but there are plenty of easy ways to include them into meals. To make a wonderful orange vinaigrette dressing for your salad, combine orange juice, parsley, honey, Dijon mustard, and balsamic vinegar.

2- Pumpkins

Noble pumpkins are much more than just a Halloween decoration. Doctors recommend pumpkins; because they are high in fibre and nutrients, and they may even help you sleep better at night. Although pumpkin isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, the cooking possibilities are practically endless; pumpkin soup is a classic, but you can also make spiced pumpkin biscuits, potato-pumpkin mash, or even a pumpkin cinnamon pie.

3- Beetroots

Beetroots are high in magnesium, copper, iron, and phosphorus, and are an excellent source of antioxidants, which aid in the purification of the blood and liver. While the beetroot is mostly used in savoury dishes in Egyptian cuisine; its natural sweetness lends it to desserts or as a great contrast in savoury dishes. It’s simple to incorporate it into a salad, but some of the more health-conscious Egyptians prefer to incorporate it into their morning smoothies — it seems funny, but it makes sense when you think about it.

4- Persimmons

Also known as the kaki fruit (or, in Egypt, the much more appealing kaka); this exotic fruit is high in vitamins A, C, E, and B6. They’re high in anti-cancer and anti-aging compounds, and they’re not as uncommon in Cairo as one might imagine. Persimmons; which resemble a mutant tomato, are wonderful whether eaten fresh, dried, uncooked, or cooked. One of the more inventive applications of the fruit is in sorbet, which is wonderful, but they’re also commonly found in trail mixes.

5- Tangerines

First and foremost, we must all agree that tangerines; like clementines and mandarins, are not simply “little oranges.” Yes, they’re both from the same family, but their flavour and nutritional characteristics are quite different. Tangerines, like oranges; are high in vitamin C and can help you combat the cold. They are, however, well-known for their ability to combat arthritis and skin ailments. Tangerines are available all winter long and Egyptians use them to make a vinaigrette dressing for your salad or a zesty tangerine pudding.

6- Bananas

Another year-round fruit that may become your new favourite snack in winter, bananas is one of the most delicious Egyptian fruits,  it’s packed with nutrients such as potassium, vitamin C, and vitamin B-6. Bananas aid digestion, eliminate toxins from the body, release serotonin (a mood-boosting neurotransmitter), and protect the body from diabetes, kidney cancer, and, many believe, depression. Bananas are one of the most adaptable fruits when it comes to combining it with other foods; smoothies, cereal, yoghurt, pancakes, or, our personal favourite, banana cake.
