Wondering what fruit and vegetables are in season in June in the UK? Read on, I’ve got all the details.

June is 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 this month. In fact, 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!

The eagle-eyed among you will notice I’ve been quite loose with my interpretation of what constitutes fruit and what constitutes 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? I’m all about the radishes this month, so I plan on trying one of these vegetarian radish recipes, whilst radishes are in season.
