Winter Fruits and Vegetables

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on November 21, 2008

 Back in September, I wrote a list of “Fall Fruits and Vegetables“…I thought I’d post the “Winter” list, as snow is currently sticking to the ground (even though we were running around the yard in tshirts and shorts just 2 weeks ago!). So here it is…the list of “Winter Fruits and Vegetables!” They will get cheaper and cheaper as the season progresses and will likely be “on and off” sale. Hopefully this will help you plan menus with produce that is likely to be on sale and in season. Here is where I found this list.

Veggies
Artichokes
Avocado
Bok Choy
Broccoli
Brussels Sprouts
Cabbage
Cauliflower
Celery
Kale
Lettuce
Parsnips
Radishes
Rhubarb
Snow Peas
Squash (Winter)
Sweet Potatoes
Turnips
Watercress

Fruits
Bananas
Cranberries
Clementines
Grapes
Grapefruit
Kiwi
Oranges
Passion Fruit
Pears
Persimmon
Pomegranate
Rhubarab
Tangerine

If you have a basement or cellar you can store a lot of these all winter long – we’ve successfully stored winter squash (spaghetti, hubbard, pumpkins), potatoes, onions, apples, pears in our basement (just keep the room cool – 60 degrees or less).

So when we find a good deal, we stock up and store!

Thanks for a great site.

I love Summer fruits and veggies… I really, really do. But, I think that the Fall and Winter ones are my favorite. Maybe because I love comfort foods :)

I love finding great deals! I especially look forward to the boxes of clementines!

Thanks! This list is really helpful. I knew some of these fruits and vegetables were in season but most I had no idea.

My research says that if you use a fruit or vegetable in its specific season; it would save you from many diseases that can arise in that particular season. Where ever unseasonal fruits or vegetables produced in green houses or frozen can’t protect you a lot. Nice list to remind me which stuff is seasonal and which is not.

so glad I happened upon this tonight because as we are becoming better at cooking at home I am trying to buy produce according to the season just because I’ve learned that is the easiest way to save on produce…. it seems easy to know what the spring/summer fruits are because all of a sudden they are bountiful at the market… but with winter I had no idea that’s when avocados were in season!
