Summer’s Bounty: 4 Fresh Fruits to Eat Now

Forget the bananas and oranges. Pass on the imported berries, too. At least for the next two months.

Now is the time of year we’re able to enjoy in-season, locally-grown fruit picked at its peak of ripeness, providing maximum flavour and nutrition.

Here are four in-season, nutrition powerhouses to include in your summer diet. But don’t wait. They won’t be around for long.
