Fruits and Vegetables Peak Season

Posted by terrepruitt on May 1, 2010

I have never been one to know the season for particular fruits and vegetables.  I have never paid attention.  I do think one reason for that is is that California has such great weather we can pretty much grow all kinds of fruits and vegetables.  Plus, it could also be that, San Jose and the area in which I have lived has always been very diverse so we always have so many different fruits and vegetables.

Now-a-days it seems like you can get anything in any type of weather.  It gets shipped from here or there.  If you are interested in eating locally grown food and eating it at the peak of its season this site might help you.

You pick the state and the month and it gives you a list of what fruits and vegetables are in season in that state during that month.  I think it is cool.  It is especially helpful for people like me who think the grocery store is where things are grown.  Ha, ok, I am not THAT bad, but this will help me exercise a bit of caution so that I can buy veggies at the peak of the season.  Although, sometimes prices and the selection at the store help with that, huh?

I would like to thank @thegoodmixer for tweeting the website.  Thanks, Janet.
