Whether you’re stopping by a produce stand or picking your own fruits and veggies, summer allows our favorite foods to be more delicious than ever! But which ones are the most beneficial to your diet? And, more importantly, when are they in season?
To help, we’ve outlined the top three most popular fruits to freshly pick. We even listed their nutritional value, and their peak picking seasons!
Believe it or not, strawberries are rich in vitamin C. Along with that, they are a great source of fiber, as well as vitamins A, E, B, manganese, and essential flavonoids. Strawberries are at their freshest during the month of June due to their need for warm days and cooler nights!
Raspberries are among the top providers for the recommended amount of fiber. And they don’t stop there—raspberries are also high in vitamins B and C, manganese, and even anthocyanins! Raspberries have a wider range for harvesting and are available from June to October.
High in fiber and low in calories - blueberries are a fantastic source of vitamins and minerals. Not to mention, one cup of blueberries can provide you with 24% of the recommended amount for vitamin C, and 36% of the recommended amount for vitamin K. Blueberries have a shorter range of harvest, typically running from mid-July to mid-August.
