Hey all. So its getting to be cold in my parts. I love veggies and fruits so much but a lot of them are out of season and way expensive. Do you all know of some in season fruits or veggies right now? I think brocolli is in there...any others? I am sure I can find out somewhere but thought this would be the best to consult fellow veggies. I am really trying to eat things that are in season because I find it important and has a less of a toll on the environment. Gracias

This looks like a pretty good list of winter veggies

Apples are a good pick this time of year in the northern hemisphere, as are many of the cruciferous veggies. Brussels sprouts are my fav! Have to admit though, being on a tight budget I often turn to frozen veggies when there's not much local produce available. It's often just as nutritious as fresh (sometimes more), cheaper by the pound than fresh, and no waste to throw out.

Butternut and acorn squash....pumpkins...um...apples (maybe?), and those sprouty-type onions...and maybe asparagus?



That was just the list of what wasn't too expensive when I went to the store today.

I think "in season" depends on where you live. I live in Colorado so there isn't alot of in season produce from now until next summer. At this time of year I look for USA labels. It is the best I can do.



The grocery in our small town started putting country of origin labels up about a month ago. I think it is great.

The list vigilant20 linked to looks pretty good to me. Here in Japan it's apples, oranges, persimmons, broccoli, leeks, and sweet potatoes right now, so if you're in a northern area those are probably pretty good bets.

Oranges and Lemons are in season right now. I really need to have my kids go out and pick them. My trees are totally full of fruit right now.
