FRUITS AND VEGETABLES HARVEST CALENDAR

Unless I walk into the grocery store and the corn on the cob is falling off the display in the produce department, I am never sure when to buy my fruits and vegetables.  I think I only buy oranges and grapes when they are at their worst and watermelon when it is out of season.

Buying fruits and vegetables during the right season will save you money.  Groceries stores will have better deals on items when they are in the peak of the season and mark the price up during off-peak season.

Buying food at the right time will ensure that you are eating your food when it taste the best!  I have put together a rough guide of what foods to look for each month.  Check your local farmers market or your states agricultural department for what is available in your area.
