When you’re trying to eat healthy, produce is extremely important, so I decided to come up with a seasonal produce chart just for you!
Why Is Seasonality Important?
Some of you may already know this, but not all fruits and vegetables are grown year round. Even if you can buy a certain fruit or vegetable at the store, it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s in its prime growing season. And most of the time, when you buy certain produce out of season, it will cost you a lot more and won’t be as fresh.
Have you ever gone and bought a bag of cherries one week for a super good deal, and then went back the next week and it was two dollars more?! That’s because the growing season ended. But eating healthy doesn’t have to be difficult, and it definitely doesn’t have to be expensive.
Here’s this adorable seasonal produce chart to help you with all of your fruit and vegetable needs so you can know when produce is in season.
Seasonal Produce Chart
Produce that is ready in spring include avocado, asparagus, and rhubarb. In Summer, expect to find more berries like blackberries, blueberries, and cherries. Brussel sprouts and pumpkin come into season in fall, and winter sees cabbage, parsnips, and yams.
But some, like apples and bananas, are in season all year round!
