Seasonal Chart of Fruits and Vegetables

Ecclesiastes 3:1 for everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:

The seasonal availability of fruits and Vegetables is Nature’s way of telling you what to eat and when. Eating foods when they are in season is an integral part of health.

All fruits and vegetables have a particular time of year when they are at their peak. It should be noted that eating according to the seasons is an important part of a healthy and sustainable diet. Furthermore, eating according to a given season has a host of benefits for your health, your wallet, the environment, and local business.

It is worth mentioning that until quite recently, seasonal eating was universal – without modern technology or transport, we had no choice but simply to eat what the trees and plants produced. As a matter of fact, I remember in Nigeria that very rarely would you see a fruit out of season on display in the markets, because it simply was unavailable. So you’d never see a mango in the winter (dry season) months or an orange in what corresponds with spring here (the wet season months of Nigeria).

These days, with all the genetic modification, use of storage technology and the globalised food market, there is that “convenience” of being able to buy any food at any time of the year. The catch is this has greatly reduced our awareness of the seasons and the environment, at a time when this awareness is most badly needed.

Eating seasonally encourages you to buy local produce or at least what your specific geographic location produces for food. I am not totally against shipping fruits from far away states, (e.g. Shipping Apples from Washington or Melons from California) for the simple fact that from a geographical stand-point, the whole of the United States for Example has four main seasons, but not every state has soil that is necessarily conducive for growing produce on a large scale. Therefore, as long as you eat what’s in season at a given time, you should be fine.

In addition, eating seasonally brings an amazing variety to your diet, once you cease with buying the same foods all year round, (for example apples and oranges, from January to December) you will begin to enjoy a sense of celebration every time a new food comes into season. You will have a deeper appreciation for the uniqueness of each season, and for the range of tastes, colors and textures it provides. The seasons give us a long-forgotten sense of the wonderful natural cycles that Western rationalism ignores.

Without a doubt, seasonal food also plays a role in holistic health – generally, fruits and vegetables appear during the season in which they are best for your body. For example, rich, full-bodied apples and or pears are winter foods, while light, juicy, refreshing mangos and melons, grapes are suited to summer. Furthermore, fresh food in season is unbeatable in terms of taste, nutritional value and variety.

Though varieties of each food may be different, this table gives each food’s peak season.

Of course there are many other fruits and vegetables, but I have listed a general compilation herewith.

“Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”–Calvin Coolidge
