Seasonal Fruit: A Handy Reference

Fresh Fruit in Season

Living in California, it’s easy to forget that fruits (and veggies) actually vary by the season.  It seems as though they’re all available year-round, or nearly so, since they’re brought in from all over the world.

Fruit that’s grown locally and eaten in season simply tastes better, costs less, and is more nutritious.  So here’s a quick guide to which fruits are peaking each month throughout the year.
