When is which vegetable season?

Would you like to cook more seasonally and regionally? Then you will find everything at a glance on our seasonal calendar.

In times of climate change, many people are increasingly asking themselves whether it is possible to have strawberries in winter and how far away are they grown. After all, December is not quite the season for it.

But which vegetables or fruits are in season and when? There are countless types of vegetables and fruits and they all ripen at different times of the year. In the following list, we show you which fruits and vegetables are in season in Central Europe, so that you can not only enjoy them as fresh as possible but also protect the climate. After all, seasonal vegetables and fruit are usually also available regionally, which alone saves a lot of CO2 in transport.
