Seasonal fruits and vegetables can only be found during certain times of the year (when they would normally be growing in your area).
Seasonal fruits and vegetables are also more nutritious and have better flavor when they are grown locally in the proper conditions instead of being picked early and shipped thousands of miles to sit on store shelves!
For example, peas and strawberries are ‘Spring crops’. They may be available all year round in certain parts of the world, but are seasonally available in the Spring.
Certain fruits and vegetables are only seasonal. Which means that they are only available, or ripe, during certain seasons. Watermellon, for example, is usually the best during summer.
Check your local market for seasonal fruits and veggies that aren’t shipped and frozen.
