View Full Version : Seasons of Fruits?????????
So for some reason I've really been wanting grapes lately. I went to the store and they've been selling for $5/lb which is crazy. I figure that they aren't in season which is why they are so expensive, right? I guess I always assumed that whatever fruit is on sale at the market is what is usually in season. Other than that I have no idea what comes out when, or what season friuts are best in, so if someone could please fill me in that would be great!!
I'll list some fruits:
Thats all I can think of right now. If someone could please tell me the season of these fruits, or even add to the list, that'd be great!

I suppose that it depends on what part of the world you are in and where the fruit comes from.
I got organic grapes this week and they came from Egypt.
Grapes are never going to be in season in Ireland.

I think you can goggle "fruit seasons" and get some sites that will give that info! I used to have them on my pc; but i reconfigured it and lost all my book marks.

I used to use a seasonal chart, and I tossed it,
pretty much MOST fruits are in season most of the time, if you live near a road or airport, as almost all fruits do not come from local farmers, which is very sad.
so, I just go to the farmer's markets and buy what they are selling, that is it.
No grocery stores or food chains for me.
We eat mostly the food that grows in our own gardens, and then we buy organci produce or trade with friends and farmers.
we also buy at Costco

This definitely depends on where you live. My twin sister lives in the South - she went blueberry picking last week. We (in the NW) won't have blueberries for months.
I live in the Portland, OR area, and we just got back from strawberry/raspberry picking this morning. So if you live around me, those two berries are available now.
Now, $5 a pound for grapes is highway robbery. I never EVER pay more than $1.99 a pound, even if I'm going nuts craving them. Remember that a medium-sized bag of grapes can easily be 3 pounds each, so you have to do the math to determine how much exactly they will cost you.
Happy fruit hunting! :)

grapes are $2.99 here, and I won't pay that much for them, we grow our own and they will be ripe in August, I'll wait.
but we are picking tons of strawberries and raspberries every day in our gardens, cherries too.
I can eat all the raspberries we can grow, I used to eat a flat a day, when I had to buy them and we didn't grow them.
but there is no way we can eat all the strawberries, we pick over a gallon a day.
we make fruit leather out of all the fruit we can't eat fresh.
Basically, we just eat what we grow, and if it isn't fresh and ripe yet, we wait, or we buy it at the farmer's market what ever is in season, or if it is the Winter, when nothing is fresh, then we buy from Costco.

I planted 96 strawberry plants in addition to the few that were already there. Have gotten maybe 2 dozen intact berries so far this year. Critters are getting the rest. I did plant 3 varieties though and should continue to get some until fall.
Birds are showing interest in the cherry tree. It's a Bing. A few cherries are in the pink/red stage. The rest are still green.
We've got two apple and two pear trees. Different varieties. They won't be ready until maybe late July, August and on into September.
I'm in the Pacific Northwest.
