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.

Seasonal Ingredient Map (check it out)

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.

    Hi Terre!!! Thanks for posting the map!!! I’ve added it to my “faves”. How interesting. It’s helpful to know what fruits and veggies can be planted as early as May. We have a fairly limited growing season up north here…can’t plant until after Memorial Day (except lettuces which like the colder temps).

    Always a pleasure reading your blogs.




    • Yes, growing periods are limited in areas where there is snow. Here . . . . I am sure there are OPTIMAL times, but, I think we still have a longer growing period. I don’t know. I am not the gardener. My husband is sometimes.

      Jill, you are such a sweetie to always read and comment. I really appreciate it.

      I am glad that you were able to determine that the site I am talking about is hot linked from my post!

    Awesome…always try to buy local…except some things like oranges are NEVER seasonal here.


  3. According to the map, the peak fruits and veggies in California in June are: Apricots (I just got some from my someone’s yard—yum!), artichokes, asparagus (really?), avacados, mectarines, okra, peaches, plums (got some of these too!), raspberries, and strawberries. What about in YOUR area?
