Summer Seasonal Fruits & Veggies

suja juice sdeasonal fruits and veggiesIf you read the Suja blog, you might already know that I love shopping according to the seasons. When you buy seasonal produce, you support local farmers and you prepare the tastiest meals since the ingredients are so fresh. Out of season produce has to be brought to you across long distances, sometimes across the globe ($10 blueberries from Chile, anyone?) Doesn’t exactly scream “fresh”, does it? These fruits and veggies are also often picked while immature, to ensure that they don’t spoil on the trip. This means less vitamins and nutrients. For these and other reasons, I always try to purchase organic, in-season fruits and veggies. Here's a list of what fruits and vegetables are in-season in the summertime:

Vegetables in Season For Summer:

  • Radishes
  • Arugula
  • Cucumber
  • Beets
  • Bell Peppers
  • Carrots
  • Zucchini
  • Garlic
  • Corn
  • Rhubarb

Summer Seasonal Fruits:

  • Apricots
  • Plums
  • Cherries
  • Blackberries
  • Nectarines
  • Strawberries
  • Peaches
  • Tomatoes
  • Passion Fruit
  • Melon
  • Lemon
  • Limes
If you don't have a farmer's market near you, just take this list to your local supermarket to guide your shopping. Enjoy! Sam Swensen & Suja Juice
