What are your favorites? I'm partial to blood oranges and clementines myself.

Not a big Cara Cara fan. The blood oranges at my supermarket are really good this season though.

Spanish oranges around easter. They destroy every other citrus fruit. But I won’t say no to a clementine for Christmas. Lime and lemon for their use.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_citrus_fruits
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pineapple

The pineapple (Ananas comosus) is a tropical plant with an edible multiple fruit consisting of coalesced berries, also called pineapples, and the most economically significant plant in the Bromeliaceae family.

Only one bromeliad, the pineapple (Ananas comosus), is a commercially important food crop.

«You may be confused because pineapple contains citric acid. However, that does not make it a citrus fruit, because the definition of a citrus fruit comes from its evolutionary origin, not its chemical makeup.

Pineapples are not even close relatives of the citrus. There are two major groups of flowering plants, the monocots and the dicots. This is as fundamental a division of plants as the division of animals into the superphylum that contains vertebrates and one of the several invertebrate superphyla.»
