Vitamin C Source without Citrus or Nightshades

What foods are an extremely high source of vitamin c that do not come from citrus or nightshades?  I suffer from autoimmune diseases and probably adrenal fatigue.  I'm not getting enough vitamin c in my diet currently.  I have some gut issues that makes eating certain green vegetables difficult too.  I'm open to your ideas about strong food sources for vitamin c as well as supplementation.

 If you want to get into less common foods in the West (which are very common elsewhere), sea buckthorn, certain rose hips and camu camu are best, with concentrations far exceeding any common food. of the commonly available foods, kiwis are the best. One kiwi equals two oranges. Next level, pineapple and strawberries. Melons of all types (including watermelon), sauerkrauts, greens are significant sources.

Why not google "foods high in vitamin C" and then elminate the citrus / nightshade foods? There are lots out thre. Mango, pianapple and cauliflower for a start.
