The days are longer, the weather is warm and many of us are spending more time outdoors. Imagine taking a bite of a big juicy peach or freshly cut watermelon to soothe your taste buds. Fresh fruit can help us feel refreshed on a hot summer day. The summer season brings an abundance and variety of fresh and tasty fruit. Eating with the seasons is a way to introduce new fruits to your family.
Now is the perfect time to head over to your local market or U-Pick field to select some in-season favorites. Selecting fruit that is in season is generally fresher and full of flavor! Fruit harvested when ripe is more flavorful than non-local produce that is picked early and ripens off the vine.
