I found this handy chart posted at http://www.good.is/post/seasonal-food-chart/. It’s originally from FrugalforLife.blogspot.com. Blue signifies fruit is in season during the marked months. Red signifies vegetables that are in season during marked months. Thought this would be helpful to pass on. Produce is found at its best prices and quality when it’s in season. Out of season vegetables are typically raised in hothouses and forced to grow rather than being grown in more natural environments. When produce is out of season, you may consider purchasing frozen fruits or vegetables for a more economical approach. Frozen produce has the same nutritional quality as fresh. Steaming is the best way to heat frozen produce without releasing its nutritional qualities. Many people overcook frozen vegetables; a tell tale sign of this is water that turns the color of the fruit or vegetable (at that point, you’d literally have to drink the water to make it nutritious). Regardless of whether you buy fresh or frozen, it’s always good to have at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables each day! And who wouldn’t want to? They’re delicious!
