Nothing tastes better than fruit that is in season, grown organically, especially when eaten with a good conscience that it has not done a world tour before it has made it to your plate.

But nowadays when produce is shipped from around the world, how do you know when fruits and veggies are actually in season? That's where this visual guide comes in really handy!

Did you know that a lot of ethnic markets often buy their produce locally? I often go to an Iranian super market because I know that they are dealing with local farmers. The produce is not only much cheaper than what the big chain stores sell them at, but tastes also much better. Now with this handy guide in hand it's even better to spot the optimum in season produce!
