The other day, we shared our guide to which fruits and veg are in season in January. A couple of you asked if we could share the info for the rest of the year.
So, Kerry, Juno and Natasha – this one’s for you:
First up, it's January. No surprises there, really. This month is perfect for stews and soups.
February is a lot like January, but with rhubarb as well as cooking apples so your in-season crumble options are doubled.
To see what's in store for March, just say the magic word and hey presto
March sees the entrance of spring greens, which explains why they're not called autumn greens.
April welcomes watercress to the party, time to crack out the egg mayo sandwiches.
May is the perfect time for asparagus, more commonly known as "nature's paintbrushes"
It's June, it's summer, strawberries are finally here. And peas. Maybe don't have them with cream.
July is bursting with colours - purples and reds and blues and greens and oranges but not from oranges.
Ah, August. Summer holidays, trips to the seaside, and whopping great marrows. The Big Three.
September is the first month of the noble plum. To grow your own plums, just shave a peach.
October is spooky season. Why not mix it up and try carving a cranberry? Because that'd be nigh on impossible, that's why.
November sees the return of a firm favourite. It's red, it's round, and it's great covered in toffee. Welcome back beetroot.
December. Time to roast those chestnuts. And those parsnips. And that cauliflower. And basically anything else you can get your hands on.
Oh, and there's a few other things that are in season in December...
