Fruits in Season – Winter

Snowflakes are falling, it’s cold out there, we’re trying to stay bundled up inside with a mug of warm hot chocolate. It seems that nothing is growing in this icy tundra, are there any fruits in season?

There’s good news! There are some fruits that are in season in the winter months. Citrus fruits, which are loaded with vitamin C and flavonoids, are grown in warm climates and are ripe for picking in the winter months between October and March. Stock up on oranges, clementines, tangerines, mandarins, kumquats, lemons and grapefruit.

Pomegranates are another winter fruit option chalked full of nutrition benefits. The ruby colored fruit hits its peak of ripeness from October through January. Other fruits that will still be available fresh in the winter months include apples, bananas, grapes, cranberries, passion fruit, kiwi and pears.

Remember that you can always enjoy fruit all year-round. Fresh fruit, frozen fruit, canned, dried and 100% juice all count in the quest for healthy fruit consumption.
