Your in-season produce guide for spring and summer

Your in-season produce guide for spring and summer

Spring has sprung and summer is on the way. That means German grocery store produce aisles are changing. When produce is in-season you'll see a lot more of it, since it'll be cheaper and likely taste better. When something is out of season it's harder to find, often imported and you'll pay a premium. Here's a guide to what's coming in-season and out of season for the spring and summer.

In-season:

Asparagus (Starts to become scarce come July.)

Eggplant

Green & Fava Beans

Broccoli

Swiss Chard

Leeks

Turnips

Strawberries

Blueberries

Raspberries

Cherries

Plums

Rhubarb

Watermelon

 

 

Out of season:

Chinese Cabbage (Pak Choi)

Collard Greens

Kale

Horseradish

Parsnips

Brussel Sprouts (I'm weeping. My favorite.)

Apples

Elderberries

Cranberries

Walnuts

Hazelnuts

Berry season is great in Germany because most bakeries have already started rolling out their strawberry pastries and cakes. I would highly recommend grabbing an “Erdbeer Plunderstücke,” a delicious dish that has a croissant-like flakey crust with a mild pudding center and ripe strawberries on top. In the fall, there will be a switch from strawberry to apple-based treats.
