The Seasonality of Fruit

Chasing Delicious has compiled the seasonal availability of fruits, vegetables and herbs into a series of eye-pleasing infographics.

The biggest problem with buying out of season produce though is the lack of freshness and sacrifice in flavor and nutrients. There are far too many, far too boring reasons to elaborate on this point but I will say there is a reason many high end restaurants and millions of foodies around the world only buy produce when it is in season.  You save money, contribute a smaller carbon foot print, are getting a better product that typically tastes much better and you know  it hasn’t been sitting for half a year somewhere.
