Seasonal calendar for fruits and vegetables


Here is another article I published on Coolinarika that I often come back to. I used the

monthly classification from the Sirova hrana website and take this opportunity to thank the

author of the article for its valuable information.


Eating fruits and vegetables when they are in season is sometimes challenging for me. There are always all kinds of fruits and vegetables at farmer's markets and grocery stores and to be honest, I really don't know when they are all in season. This simple monthly classification is a great help when choosing produce for your main dishes, salads or smoothies.
