Fruit and Vegetables in Season in February

leeks

Wondering what’s in season in February?  Wonder no more!  I’ve got the definitive list of the fruits and vegetables in season in Britain this month.

I also had a bit of a brainwave this month to make these lists even more useful for you!  I’ve attached a PDF download of this list (without photos) so you can easily print it off and pin it to your fridge, or fold it up and carry it in your bag when you go shopping so you know what to look for!  Why I didn’t think of it sooner, I do not know, but I’ve also taken the liberty to go back and do it for every month’s Fruit and Vegetables in Season post so far.  I hope this is a useful addition for you!

Click here to see, save and print the February Fruit and Veg PDF.  If you have any problems just let me know!

Anyway, on to the fruit and veg.  February sees leeks and cabbage at their very best but there are lots of other good things in season this month.  The old favourites – apples and pears and that winter staple – kale!

Fruit and Vegetables in Season in January

I’m back sharing what fruit and vegetables are in season this month.  January is a bit of leaner month but it is a bumper month for kale, glorious kale!  Are you a fan?  I’ve always found it to be a bit on the bitter side, but I did recently hear an unusual tip to improve it’s taste – give the leaves and stem a good old massage!  Apparently this helps alleviate the bitterness and chewiness often associated with kale.  Who knew?!

To help you remember what’s in season I’ve made you a free PDF printable of this post (without images) that you can save and print off to pin to your fridge or carry with you in your bag.  You can find the January Fruit and Veg guide here.

Now on with the show – here is what else is in season in January:
