Seasonal Fruit And Vegetables For October

1. Strawberries, 2. Mangoes, 3. grapefruit, 4. Abacaxi, piña, pineapple

As we head further into spring some of my children’s favourite fruits are starting to come into season – strawberries and mangoes. The mangoes are still on the more expensive end at the market, so it will be a few weeks before we start buying them in multiple amounts.

The following fruits and vegetables listed below are at their best and cheapest this month. These lists are for Australia, but if you live in the UK you can see what’s in season at Eat the Seasons UK and for North America Eat the Seasons US.

berries – strawberry, cumquat, grapefruit – pink – yellow, lemon, loquat, mango, orange – valencia, papaya, pawpaw, Pineapples – smooth – rough leaf, starfruit.
