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

This page has a table below that tells when each fruit or vegetable is normally ready to be harvested in Tennessee!  Of course, the weather, location in the state, altitude and varieties planted greatly affect the dates, so always call the farms! 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.

Typical Crop Availability - When to Pick in Tennessee

dark green = available;      light green = sometimes / some farms;      White or gray = not usually available

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.
