Friday Facts About Fall Harvests

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

We’re often told to buy fruits and vegetables that are in season.

(1) Hardly anything has a season in the global marketplace.

Apples, traditionally harvested from late summer through fall, can be found at any time of the year in the supermarkets of today’s world.

(2) The catch is that apples and other fall season fruits and vegetables are harvested far too early so when they reach the produce section they’re likely to be not ripe, over-ripe, or not very tasty.

(3) When buying produce, look for a “home-grown” label at your supermarket.

(4) Also, find a nearby farmer’s market. 

(5) Locally grown means better taste for about the same or less expense.  It’s easy to find organic produce locally too.

(6) Buying locally-grown produce helps farmers in your area.

(7) Buying locally-grown produce means you get fruits and vegetables without residue from pesticides that are still used in other countries but banned in the U.S.

(8) At this time of year, you’ll find these fruits for sale in most areas.

Apples of many varieties. Buy the type best for what you want to use them for. Check out my post, Choose Apples Based on Use.
Pears (We’re picking ours now and storing them in the refrigerators. They ripen while refrigerated.)

Persimmons and Pomegranates 
(9) You’ll find these seasonal vegetables for sale.
Beets, broccoli, broccoli rabe, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, and celery

Salad and stir-fry greens like arugula, chard, kale, lettuces, mustard greens, spinach

Root vegetables like carrots, parnsips, rutabagas, and turnips (cook the turnip greens too)



Winter squash like acorn, butternut, delicata, hubbard, and spaghetti

Takeaway Truth 

Many farmer’s markets are open on the weekends to cater to those who work Monday through Friday. You may also find home canned pickles, relishes, jellies, and jams. Why not locate one today?
