Spring produce guide: September
It has certainly been a quick year (at least for us at Cannon Logistics), and now we have officially entered into Spring.
Spring is often associated with warm days and new life, but it’s also a time where produce – both fruits and vegetables – becomes far more plentiful. Things simply tend to grow better in warm, gentle conditions of Spring.
From this month on, we will be providing an overview of some of the best fruit and vegetables to buy during each month and season. So, without further ado, let’s look at some of the best produce to consider picking up during September, our first month of Spring:
As the days get warmer, there’s honestly nothing quite like biting into a tasty piece of fruit. Of course, fruit doesn’t just have to be enjoyed on its own. Consider putting together a fruit salad, making some tarts (e.g. strawberry tarts), fruit smoothies, frozen yoghurt, or even throwing some fruit into a sorbet. There are plenty of ways to enjoy a healthy, refreshing and tasty snack with the following fruits:
- Apples; particularly Lady Williams
- Honey murcott (mandarins)
- Oranges; particular Blood and Seville
The good thing about vegetables is that they’re so versatile. Of course, just like fruits, you’ll be enjoying them all year round. But given it’s Spring, why not think of some Spring-style meals that you can incorporate the following vegetables into? So you may trade in the heavy, hearty winter meals of beef stew with something like steak complemented by a crisp salad or grilled selection of vegetables – it is BBQ season, after all. Oh, and don’t forget pizza; almost everyone loves pizza.
- Asian greens
- Beans; particularly Broad and Green
- Garlic, fresh
- Onions; particularly Spring and Green
