My kids find it hard to believe that when I was young, fruits were only available “in season.” These days, thanks to special growing techniques and massive imports, I’m pretty sure you could get a bowl of watermelon for breakfast on Christmas morning! As I stared at the ridiculously overpriced blueberries at SAMS club the other day, I tried to remind myself of when different fruits were in season. Honestly, I couldn’t remember many of them. One thing is for sure, nothing tastes better than fruit in season, and not only will it cost you less, but there’s a better chance it didn’t have to cross the seven seas to get to your grocer.  Here is a list of some of the fruits that are in season March – May:

Apricots ,Bitter Melon, Honeydew, Jackfruit, Limes, Lychee, Mango, Oranges, Pineapple and Strawberries.
