Apricots, peaches, sweet potato, papaya, broccoli, cranberries, brussels sprouts, even peas. A lot of fresh fruits and veggies have good amounts of vitamin C.

Blueberries also have a ton of vitamin C.

Apparently fresh thyme and parsley have a high levels. There's also guava or dark leafy greens.

I try and eat 5 portions of fruit and veg every day (don't always succeed), but I find I keep running low on vitamin c. I'm not keen on citrus fruit or strawberries, never manage to finish a canteloupe when I buy one (they don't last eight days!) and bell peppers give me a bad stomach.

Any know of any other good sources of vitamin c? I've heard spinach is, but I'm not sure how much I'd need to eat to get enough, and how to prepare it? Cooking and processing destroys a lot of vitamin c I believe?
