Strawberries in March

Beets

You can buy produce out of season these days. At supermarkets you can get most fruits and vegetables all-year round. Yuck. Watery and flavorless strawberries in March. Asparagus in December. So wrong.

Even restaurants use ingredients that really shouldn’t be available. Not only do you sacrifice a lot of flavour, but it’s also crazy expensive to buy out-of-season produce.

So what vegetables are in season for April?

 
Beets
Cauliflower
Leeks
Mushrooms
Radish
Cabbage
Tomatoes
Cucumber
Green Beans
Spinach
Watercress
Onions
Broccoli
Spring Onions
Potatoes
Rhubarb
Turnip
Carrots

 
I’m sure I’m forgetting a few, but this list should get us started!

      I´m sorry Kay, but for me seasonal is directly related with climate and outdoor growing. Cucumbers, green beans and tomatoes are late spring to autumn seasonal veggies, Beets are highly improbable as well, unless real tiny at the end of April.

      1. Officially, tomato season starts around april! Of course it depends on where you live and in what climate that is (California tomato season starts mid-April), every country has its own produce season, but these are the vegetables that are officially in season during April and I have readers all over the world.

        Beet season starts in March, actually.

      We enjoy vine-ripened, outdoor-grown tomatoes and other fresh produce year round here in Florida! Yum – I eat at least half a tomato every day in my salad.

      I agree with Barbara — lucky to have year-round produce here in FL :)
