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.

Just an observation but you listed Artichokes twice…is this your favorite veggie?

Thanks Amy! Not my favorite, but I do like them 🙂
I love reading your blog. Thanks for all your tips and recipes.
I nominated you for an award over on my blog!
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.

This is super helpful! Thanks for sharing!
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!
id like it a lot it is helpful cuz i have tp dp a project on this but i cant find why are they grown in winter can u ?:)
