We celebrate four distinct seasons in Canada. When we’re eating fruits and vegetables in season, it means we get to enjoy them at their peak freshness. Plus, we love to support our local farmers!
Despite our cold winters, there are many fruits and vegetables that we can enjoy at various times throughout the year. Farmers and researchers continue to improve varieties and growing techniques and sometimes with the aid of greenhouses and other improved growing technology or through improved breeding through plants science they have been able to extend the length of time a fruit or vegetable is available.
