The Ultimate Fruit and Vegetable Season Calendar

One of the key ways to eat fruit and vegetables sustainably is to eat what’s in season on any given month. Eating seasonally means you’re assisting the farmer by consuming products which are ready to be eaten and you’re also helping yourself, as seasonal foods are often more nutrient dense at the time of consumption (as they are ready and ripe!) It also can work out much cheaper! As the food you’re eating is ready for the farmers to harvest, and therefore costs less for them to produce.

So many bonuses to eating seasonally, but how do you know what fruit and veg is in season each month? We’ve compiled the ultimate season calendar so you can find out what delicious fruit and vegetables are available every month of the year.
