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

The Herbs To Eat Now
Don’t forget that June sees herbs in season too:
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.
