Seasonal F&V 2020 web image_73800

Here is your seasonal guide to British fruit & veg, celebrating all the fantastic fruit and vegetables grown by British farmers.

Our interactive chart will help you find out when British fruit and veg is in season and available to buy. 

Use the month and fruit/veg filters to narrow your search and click on a food item to meet the grower or find out more information.

British growers use modern growing and harvesting technology, along with good storage conditions to enable us to eat some British crops, like carrots, cauliflowers, potatoes and apples all year. Some warmer climate crops such as aubergines and peppers can be available to buy in colder months because they're grown using glasshouse technology in a controlled microenvironment.

This chart should be as a poster in every supermarket (in the veg area) and carry the slogan, "name of supermarket, supports British vegetable growers"

Agree with others..... please make the list printable so we can print off and use.

Totally agree with Andrew Maxwell. This needs to be in a printable format so we can keep it near our shopping list.

I agree. The table should be by fruit and veg in all supermarkets. Giving the consumer information of when we are buying british products and not imported

I would love this as a print-out-able guide i can, er, print, and put on mu cupboard door.

Brilliant interactive guide. As all food seems to be in the shops at all times these days, I had forgotten the true British seasons. As a child in England you could only buy what was in season (No fresh food imports of what could be home grown in those days)

Shame I cannot either print or save to 'books' the whole table only a snapshot of the page, screen shot, showing.

Do you have the seasonal Fruit & Veg guide as a PDF - I would like to print it to give to our customers , Regards Gary

Keep up with the good work & high quality that is there at the moment.

We need to invest in our British farmers and eat crops from our own land.

Lesley Draffen - 21/06/2020 16:42:03

I should very much like to know which fruit and vegetables I should be buying every month.

Thank you, what an awesome resource. It is a really useful chart, and I would love to print it off to pin to my fridge to help with seasonal eating, however, the print option is to print what you see, not to print the whole chart. I would love to hear from you.

I would and do buy British fruit and veg when in season. The season chart is very handy. As a vegan I do eat plenty of fruit ‘n’ veg. On British holidays I look for local grown produce -delicious. I want our food standards to be of the highest possible, so no USA imported chickens & meat produce chlorinated or otherwise. Our best and respected farmers in UK do keep animal hygiene at a high level, some don’t and they will always be exposed sooner or later. Back British Farmers.

It should be mandatory for this guide should be displayed next to the fruit & veg displays in supermarkets, so that the public can see that the stuff they're about to buy is 'out of season'
