Seasonality of Produce

Knowing when produce is in season is important. Not only is the flavor on in season produce better, but there have been studies that show eating items in season, contain more nutrients (because they aren’t forced to grow when they normally wouldn’t, enter fertilizers, pesticides, etc.), help farmers, and our economy. If you think about it, not that long ago at all, you couldn’t find every single kind of produce year around, like you can now. Seriously, think about it.

I found this post on what to eat, when, it’s an infographic called The Bountiful Year: http://dailyinfographic.com/what-to-eat-when-to-eat-it-infographic. It has a really awesome list of fruits and vegetables, when they’re in season, and when they are available but not in season.

Here’s another seasonal chart, that includes herbs (again, I love this website!): http://dailyinfographic.com/fruitsvegetablesherbs-when-are-they-in-season-infographic

I LOVE this website (being the chart loving visual learner that I am)! It’s called The Daily Infographic. Each day it has an educational graphic posted about any random topic: http://dailyinfographic.com/
