June has come round so quickly, don’t you think? It doesn’t seem like all that long ago I shared what UK fruits and vegetables are in season in May, and here I am sharing what’s in season in June!
I always find June such an exciting time, food wise. A lot of the nice soft fruit is coming into season (hello strawberries!) and there’s such a wide array of lovely British vegetables in season. Peas and broad beans are at their very best in June, so if you’re growing your own make sure you get out and get picking!
Even if you’re not growing your own, here’s what fruit, vegetables and herbs are in season in June so you know what to look out for at the shops. You can also download this guide as a printer-friendly shopping list – download the PDF here for free: Fruit and Vegetables in Season in June.

The eagle-eyed among you will notice I’ve been quite loose with my interpretation of what constitutes as fruit and what constitutes as vegetables. Rather than get all botanical, and classify tomatoes, cucumbers, peas, etc, as fruit (as that is what they actually are), I’ve gone with the popular classification choice! I hope no-one minds! I’ve also snuck in some herbs for you this month too! Don’t say I’m not good to you!
What’s on your menu this month?
