Fresh From Florida June Produce
Here it is June already! Do you know what Fresh from Florida June Produce is in season now?
June is the beginning of summer and there are so many delicious Florida produce varieties to choose from this month. I’ve included some of my favorite summer recipes using fresh from Florida summer produce.
You’ll notice that the list of fresh from Florida produce is getting shorter the warmer the weather gets. There will always be some type of Florida fruit or vegetable that is in season during the summer months.
The hot Florida summers and heavy rains we experience from June to September during our rainy season are rough on fruit and vegetable plants.
That is why Florida is known for all of the fresh winter produce that grows here. When it is cold and snowy across most of the country the Sunshine state has the perfect temperatures for growing produce.
During the hot summer months, you will notice many tropical fruits are in season, like carambola, mango, papaya, passionfruit, and lychee.
Tropical fruits thrive in Florida’s wet and humid climate during the summer.
Fresh From Florida June Produce What’s In Season Now Recipes included
Avocados: Everyone seems to love avocados these days and they are so healthy. I like to eat a fresh avocado sliced on a sandwich or make this chunky Mango Guacamole on the weekends during avocado and mango season.
Cantaloupe: Fresh cantaloupe is perfect for a quick summer breakfast of fruit bowl. Or fresh melon makes a refreshing glass of iced Melon Aqua Fresca on a hot summer day.
Carambola: Carambola is an odd-looking tropical fruit. Because of its star shape when you slice it the tropical fruit is also known as star fruit. All the kids love the sweet and tart flavor of star fruit but it makes a great Carambola and Strawberry jam recipe for canners who live in an area where start fruits are dropping off the trees.
Eggplant: Grilled Eggplant is delicious on a grilled vegetable sandwich. Or use slice grilled eggplant to make eggplant lasagna.
Mango: One of my favorites was to eat a fresh mango is to make a jar of fresh Mango Peach Salsa.
Mushrooms: Freezer Meals are how I stay sane during the busy summer month. Make this Freezer Meals Chicken Marsala recipe and use fresh button mushrooms.
Papaya: Papaya is so good in smoothies. You can see here how I like to freeze Papya so I can use it in my fruit smoothies.
Potatoes: Potatoes go with everything! If you love your crock pot as much as I do check out how I make Creamy Crock Pot Garlic Mashed Potatoes. Or Garlic Rosemary Smashed Potatoes made with baby golden potatoes.
Sweet Corn: Florida Sweet Corn is really the best sweet corn you will ever buy. Florida sweet corn is available in three varieties. You can buy Florida Yellow Sweet Corn, Florida White Sweet Corn, and Bi-Colored Florida Sweet Corn.
Each of the Florida sweet corn varieties has its own distinct flavor. Next time you barbecue and have some leftover grilled corn on the cob make this Grilled Corn Casserole recipe.
Tomatoes: Fresh tomatoes can be enjoyed in so many different recipes. I love adding them to pasta salad. This Asparagus Tomato Pasta salad recipe is a great summer side dish recipe.
Watermelon: Nothing cools a bunch of sweaty kids off faster than a slice of ice-cold Florida watermelon. Have you ever made an icy pitcher of Watermelon Thyme Lemonade?
