Seasonal Produce for April

I always wonder what is the best produce to buy during each season, so I have started a monthly post that lets you know what is the best fruits and vegetables to be buying for your season.

I also found a new site that I love that shows your state's local produce from the National Resources Defense Council. It shows you how to "Eat Local" by calculating the Food Miles your veggies have traveled.

April
in season vegetables:
Zucchini, rhubarb, artichokes, asparagus, spring peas, broccoli, lettuce, leeks, cabbages, carrots

April in season fruits:
Pineapples, mangoes (these have to have a few "Food Miles" on them!)

This is vaguely for the whole USA, so your region might have other veggies that are in season.
