Crop Harvest Calendar for Illinois
This page has a table below that tells when each fruit or vegetable is normally ready to be harvested in Illinois! We also have a page with links to our own simple instructions on canning, freezing and drying many fruits and vegetables, such as how to make jam, apple butter, applesauce, spaghetti sauce, salsa, pickles, ketchup or freezing corn.
The light green indicates light crops at the beginning or end of a season - dark green is when the bulk of the crop ripens and picking is best.

Remember to ALWAYS call the farm or orchard BEFORE you go - weather, heavy picking and business conditions can always affect their hours and crops!
