Seasonal Fruits and Vegetables for April

Mon Apr 1 2013

I came across this great article on blisstree.com regarding the freshest fruits and vegetables in April.  This is great because as the weather starts to warm up in Toronto as we transition from winter into spring, more of us start to think about shopping at farmers' markets around the city and trying to support local farmers.  The list is based on the US seasonal fruits and vegetables, but I think it can be extrapolated to apply to us Canadians as well!

With April showers come a few new additions to spring’s bounty—though in much of the United States, seasonal fruit and vegetable offerings are still limited. Heartier, cold weather crops like Swiss chard, kale and leeks still count as fresh finds; and toward the ends of the month warmer states will see crops such as summer squash and cherries.

Other on-the-way-in veggies and fruits include:

  • Avocado
  • Fava beans
  • Peaches
  • Pineapple
  • Ramps
  • Spinach
  • Strawberries
  • Sweet onions

April’s stars include peak-season produce such as:

  • Artichokes
  • Asparagus
  • Green onions
  • Rhubarb
  • Snow peas
  • Spring salad greens

Also flourishing in the U.S. in April:

  • Arugula
  • Beets
  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower
  • Chicory
  • Fiddlehead ferns
  • Radishes
  • Turnips

Eat these up now, because they’re on they’re way out of season:

  • Grapefruit
  • Kale
  • Leeks
  • Morel mushrooms
  • Navel Oranges
  • Swiss chard
