Winter: Fruits and Vegetables in Season (December, January, February)

December 21, 2017 / Food




Winter is a season where nothing seems to be growing. The trees are bare it’s freezing and your grass is completely dead. One thing you might not know about this season is that things are still growing and thriving during winter. We call those plants “cold hardy” because they are! This produce can be grown and harvest through the winter. What is equally important to know is that these are the plants you should be eating during the winter. Since they are harvested during the winter they will give you exactly what you need to make it through these colder months. You will notice that there isn’t a ton of fruit on this list because fruit has a cooling effect on the body and eating too much of it during the winter can make you sick. The fruit that is in season you will notice is packed with vitamin C that is no coincidence! So avoid a lot of tropical plants and bring on the squash because it’s snowing outside!
