Which fruit and vegetables are in season in spring?

Searcher in springDuring the different seasons in the UK, different vegetables and fruits grow. Find out what’s in season and good to eat this spring!

Spring happens in the months between March and May, just after winter. Flowers start to bloom, it’s getting a bit warmer, and the sun stays up a little longer.

It is better to buy vegetables and fruit that are grown locally when they’re in season.

It’s better for the environment!

Less energy is used, and less pollution is created when vegetables and fruit are grown and picked locally during their normal season. Vegetables and fruit grown outside their normal season need artificial light and heat to grow or are flown into your local supermarkets from abroad.

It’s cheaper!

Buying local, seasonal vegetables and fruit is usually cheaper than off-season vegetables and fruit because the cost to grow and transport them is lower.
