Summer Fruit and Vegetables

28 Aug

It’s always best to use locally grown, seasonal fruits and vegetables.  Produce that hasn’t been transported long distances is healthier and likely cheaper; moreover, you’re helping your local community as well as the planet.  Here are some fruits, vegetables, and herbs that are seasonal in the summer:

  • Apricots
  • Basil
  • Bell Peppers
  • Blackberries
  • Cantaloupe
  • Cherries
  • Corn
  • Cucumber
  • Mango
  • Nectarines
  • Peaches
  • Plums
  • Raspberries
  • Rhubarb
  • Strawberries
  • Tomatoes
  • Watermelon
