1. Strawberries

Spring is the right time for sweet red berries everybody knows.

Sure, you can buy them now, but I don’t recommend eating strawberries right now since they are less healthy. You can use strawberries in almost every meal.

Strawberries are a great source of vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6, vitamin A, vitamin K, and vitamin E.

Apricot
Healthy

2. Apricots

This bright orange fruit is another delight of spring and summer. It tastes as if it was made for making pies.

If you don’t like cherry pie, I suggest that you try an apricot one. Put some cream on top of it and you will get the food of the gods.

Apricots are high in fiber, vitamin C, potassium, water, calcium, iron and antioxidants.

Melon
Honey

3. Honeydew Melon

Honeydew melon has a very long growing season from May to October. So you will have a bit of spring, the whole summer and autumn to try all the tastiest recipes with this sweet-scented and colorful season fruit.

If you don’t like bananas you can eat honeydew melon, instead, as it is a great source of potassium.

Mango

A delicious fruit that you can use in all kinds of spring recipes. Mango is highly popular fruit in spring. It comes from warmer, tropical climates and is ripe from March to June.

Blueberries are healthy and delicious and you can start buying them from May to August, and if you go in for gardening, you can even try to grow them in your own garden.
