Apples and Grapes In Season Now

The end of summer is just around the corner and a shift in available cheap fruits and vegetables accompanies the change in weather.

You should be able to tell what’s no longer in season by tracking rising prices. At my local market, a pint of blueberries is now $4.99 compared to just $2.50 several weeks ago. The price has been inching higher ever since.

Additionally, cherries are now $5.99 per pound, twice the price during most of July and August.

Replace berries and cherries with apples and grapes, which are ripening as you read this and will be in plentiful supply for the next several weeks.

I tend to have allergy issues with raw fruits and vegetables, so berries are always a great option. But you're right, the prices skyrocket out of season.

I can do citrus!
