Seasonal food is not only great on our plates but it’s good for the planet too. Knowing which fruit or veg is in season now could save you money, plus eating seasonal food will make your meals taste better too.

When foods are in season, there’s more of it, which means lots of supermarkets will have deals and offers on surplus organic food. Bulk-buy fruit and veg when it’s in season and freeze food before it becomes more expensive in later months. For example, when tomatoes are in season, make a batch of herby tomato pasta sauce and freeze in containers for pastas and soups.
