What's in Season?


I try to buy fruits and veggies, in season, as much as I can, because 1)they cost less, and 2)they are more nutritious.

If you're anything like me, you might not know your seasons very well.  That can especially be true for those of us in America that have a variety of fruit and vegetables imported and available to us all year round.

I only recently learned that fall is the season for grapes.  That is helpful to know, as my son loves grapes.

So, check out this list, share it with your friends, and please let me know if there is something I accidentally left off of it.

apples
cranberries
grapes
pears
persimmons
pomegranates
