What's in season in December 2016, and other timely information:

These are the TYPICAL, historical dates that crops are ready to be picked or harvested in Mississippi.  Of course, this is a big state with a wide range of climates, from the Gulf to the mountains, so it is not possible to provide absolute list for the whole state. In general, the southern part of the state starts and finishes each crop a few weeks ahead of the northern parts.  Plus the seasons vary a little bit every year, depending upon the weather and other conditions, so call a few weeks ahead of the start date!
