What’s in Season in Texas Now?

Did you know that Texas has one of the longest growing seasons in the United States? That means we have access to a wide variety of seasonal fruits and vegetables all year long!

For example, in the springtime we can enjoy fresh strawberries, asparagus, and peas. In the summer, watermelons, cantaloupes, and corn on the cob are perfect for cooling off with. Fall brings us yummy apples, pumpkins, and sweet potatoes, and in winter we can still find oranges, grapefruits, and carrots at our local farmers markets, and don’t even get us started with the amazing greens like kale that are packed with vitamins and nutrients to fight off those winter chills.

Eating seasonally has many benefits for both your health and the environment. Seasonal fruits and vegetables are typically more ripe and full of flavor because they haven’t been shipped from far away or stored for long periods of time. They’re also more nutritious since they haven’t lost any of their vitamins and minerals during the transportation process. Eating seasonally also helps reduce your carbon footprint since food that is grown locally doesn’t have to be shipped long distances. And supporting local farmers is always a good idea! Buying seasonal produce helps keep small farms in business, which is good for both the economy and the environment.

We Texans are truly lucky to have such a bounty of fresh produce available to us year-round! So next time you’re craving something seasonal, remember that you can probably find it right here in Texas at your local farms, farmers markets, and your local farm-to-table restaurant.

January is a great time to enjoy seasonal produce in Texas! Start the year right with some of our favorites such as oranges, grapefruits, carrots, kale, and cabbage. Oranges are a great source of Vitamin C, which is perfect for boosting your immune system during the winter months. Carrots are a root vegetable that is available year-round, but they're especially sweet and delicious in the winter.
