we know that eating seasonally/locally is good for our health and our wallet, but sometimes it's hard to know exactly what's in season. of course it depends on where you live and there's some overlap in seasons, but here's a general cheat sheet based on new york state. winter is a dormant season in new york so there's a whole lot of nothing going on besides apples and pears from storage.
spring- cherries, strawberries
summer- blueberries, cantaloupe, plums, raspberries, watermelon, peaches, nectarines, blackberries
fall- apples, pears, grapes, asian pears
winter- apples and pears from storage. enjoy clementines, grapefruit, tangerines, and oranges from warmer climates.
ps: fruits to choose organic.
