Most of the apples consumed in the U.S. are grown in Washington, Michigan, or New York. Precise climate controlled storage environments allow us to have fresh, domestic apples year-round.
California produces almost 80% of the fresh asparagus that is grown domestically. Harvests start in February, peak in March, and dwindle by June.
Avocado season in California runs from February through September. Although peak harvests don’t happen until summertime, March is when these fruits really start ripening.
Broccoli is available year-round, but as a cool weather crop, its peak season is between October and April, when temperatures are lower.
Another cool weather crop, cabbage is produced in the fall through spring months in the South and in the summer and fall months in northern states, leading to year-round availability. The biggest cabbage producing states are California, Florida, New York, Texas, and Wisconsin.
