Crop Harvest Calendar for Georgia

This page has a table below that tells when each fruit or vegetable is normally ready to be harvested Georgia!  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.

These are the typical, historical dates that crops are ready to be picked or harvested in Georgia.  Of course, it varies a little bit every year, depending upon the weather and other conditions.  Keep in mind that Georgia is a huge state with a very wide range of climates, so the early dates generally refer to the start in the southern part of the state and the latter date is the end of the crop in the north. Call ahead of the early date to the farm!
