What's in season in September 2020, and other timely information:

This page has a table below that tells when each fruit or vegetable is normally ready to be harvested Utah! Please write in to help me correct and refine it! 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.


What's in Season - Typical Crop Availability in Utah-

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.
