The foods that have the most vitamin C

Acerola cherries

West Indian cherries, or wild crepe myrtles—are rare but worth included in this list due to their high vitamin C content.

Bell peppers

Their vitamin C levels vary by hue, but they're all high. Green peppers have 95 mg, red peppers 152 mg, while yellow peppers amaze with 341 mg.


One half-cup of blackcurrants, which contain 101 mg of vitamin C, meets and exceeds your daily requirement.


One cup of cooked broccoli has over 100 mg of vitamin C, meeting and exceeding men's and women's daily requirements.

Brussels sprouts

A half-cup serving of broccoli offers 50 mg of vitamin C, similar to Brussels sprouts. The latter has fiber, potassium, vitamins A and K.


One cup of chopped or balled cantaloupe provides 65 milligrams of vitamin C—enough for the day. The vitamin A and potassium content meet your daily needs.


As various strains of the same plant species, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and cauliflower belong in this list.
