Ripening Dates for Fruits and Vegetables

Please note that actual dates may vary by as much as two week or three due to weather conditions, variety of the fruit or vegetable, geographical location of the farm, and other factors. Obvious northern, mountainous and colder parts of the state will be later than warmer areas. It is always advisable to call a farm earlier than the expected beginning of a season to verify on the status of the product you are interested in.
