Fruit Growing Seasons in South Africa 09/16/11

For today's picture, we're looking at what fruit grows when in South Africa.

While we quite happily eat apples and grapes all year round, obviously we aren’t always eating what’s in season.

South African information can be a bit difficult to get hold of, that’s why this Fruit Growing Guide on the the SA Fruit Farms website was a great find.

According to this chart, during September, the fruits in season are:

  • Oranges – Navels, Valencias
  • Lemons
  • Star Ruby Grapefruit
  • Mandarines
  • Hass, Edranol and Ryan avocados

December is one month to look forward to when grapes, apricots, mangoes, litchis, peaches, plums and nectarines become plentiful!

Hello Kwame,

Your question was appended to an article I was reading. Then, I noticed that no one has responded. Therefore, I am trying to help out.

I live in Philadelphia (USA) and there is a radio talk show on public radio about gardening. This guy should help. Also, he has a webssite. below are the details. You can send your question to him on the website and, if you are lucky, he may be able to invite you on air to pose the question.

Here it is:
