Fruit and Vegetables in Season in April

fruit vegetables in season in april

Aah, April!  We’re finally out of winter and have a full month of spring ahead of us – yippee!  British seasonal fruit and vegetables are still a bit thin on the ground this month, but there are still a few old favourite fruit and vegetables in season in April to keep us going through the month.  And there’s the addition of some spring delights – radishes, cucumbers, spring onions and even some herbs this month to cheer up our plates!  And, finally this forager’s favourite – wild nettles!  I’m planning on getting busy with the nettles this month – hopefully I’ll be able to share my nettle makes with you this month.

If you’ve not tried nettle before, it’s similar in taste to spinach, and once you boil it there’s no danger of stinging – I promise!!  Give it a go this month – maybe start with this wild nettle pesto recipe?  And let me know how you get on!

As before, I’ve included all of the information below in an free printable, without images, to make life easier for you when you’re out shopping for seasonal produce, or meal planning.  Grab the free fruit and vegetables in season in April printable here!

Fruit and Vegetables in Season in March

Hello March! You’re looking mighty fine! I don’t know if it’s all the snowdrops and crocuses in bloom right now, or the fact that every florist and corner shop around here is dripping in daffodils but I’m beginning to feel a little spring in my step, even if the weather isn’t quite matching my mood yet!

I’ve put together my monthly guide to what fruit and vegetables are in season in March, and again put together a free printable (image free) that you can print out and pin to your fridge door or take with you on shopping trips.  I don’t know about you but I’ve been finding this printable insanely useful!  You can download this guide to what’s in season in March here .
