Who doesn’t like a great piece of juicy ripe fruit; you know when you bite into that perfectly ripe pear and the juice starts running down your chin? Or, that Clementine that is oh so sweet that you grab another and another. So What Fruit is in Season in January? I bet you can guess.
January is the month for all things Citrus

Eating fruit that is in season offers you the best selection of fresh and naturally ripe produce that is at its peak for eating. Of course, most fruit is available all year long but eating seasonally guarantees you get the best the fruit has to offer in flavor, texture, and nutrition.

I love displaying my fruits on the counter. Here’s a great 2-tiered metal bowl set that will show off your beautiful fruit.
Living in California offers us an amazing variety of fruit. The lemons and grapefruit are from my backyard. It is so nice to just walk out my door and pick fruit. However, regions across the U.S. share in growing amazing fruits and all come into season at different times.
I hope you have a chance to visit your local orchard or farmer’s markets for fresh seasonal fruits and support all those that grow our food.

I love this sturdy citrus squeezer and zester, it is perfect for juicing and the zester makes small strips of the citrus rind, perfect for garnishing. And, if you like to eat your grapefruits cut in half like I do try this grapefruit set.
Blessings to all and enjoy your fruit.
