I don’t know about you, but sometimes I find it hard to remember what fruit and vegetables are in season right now. Particularly as it’s so easy to buy what you want, regardless of the season, anytime you want from the supermarket.

I am all about choosing seasonal fruits and vegetables. It’s a great way to savour the flavours of the season. After all, it is fresher and tastier than food that’s had to travel a long way from field to fork. Seasonal fruit and vegetables grown in the UK are so full of flavour, compared to say tasteless strawberries bought in January.

But it’s not just the taste that’s better. Some fruits and vegetables also start to lose nutrients straight after they are picked. If they don’t have to travel thousands of miles to reach your place, then they’re going to be better for you.

Seasonal fruit and vegetables are often cheaper than their out-of-season counterparts. And their carbon footprint is often considerably lower than unseasonal fruit and vegetables.

When it comes to what’s in season now, Rhubarb and asparagus are at their best in May. But that’s not all that’s good to eat. Here’s a little run-down of what other fruit and vegetables are in season in May in the UK.

I’ve also put together a printer-friendly PDF version of this guide for May so can print it off and pin it to your fridge or keep it in your bag when you head out to the shops.
