Seasonal Vegetables and Fruits List in September

Researchers from the Austrian Consumers Association confirm that vegetables picked and frozen when in season are actually higher in nutrients than those flown in out of season from abroad. So the vitamin content of frozen peas, beans, sweetcorn, carrots and cauliflower was significantly higher than fresh vegetables imported from Italy, Turkey, Spain and Israel. The British Nutrition Federation reinforces the message: “We recommend that people eat fruit and vegetables in season,” says their spokeswoman Sarah Stanner.
