Summer: what is growing in Germany?

Stalls with asparagus and strawberries from the region have reopened on the streets in recent weeks. As you walk past you can smell the quality of the fresh fruits and vegetables that grow in the immediate vicinity at this time of year.

Anyone who is not yet completely familiar with the rhythm of the most varied types of vegetables and fruits in Germany can wonderfully go to the "Regional Seasonal" website using the "season calendar“Get an overview of the harvest in Germany every month of the year. 

The time of the mild selection in winter is now clearly over, because now, for example, zucchini, eggplant, beans, broccoli, tomatoes, spinach, peas, fennel, cucumber or potatoes grow in the vicinity. It is very easy to pay attention to seasonal and thus regional nutrition in these seasons.

Recipe tip: As paprika will soon grow again in Germany, the famous Greek salad is a perfect summer recipe. The following ingredients are required for this:

Peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, sheep cheese, olives are chopped as desired and mixed with oregano, salt, pepper, vinegar and oil. The salad still tastes great the next day, if it has already pulled a bit.

Summer time is berry time! From June there will be a large selection of blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, currants, gooseberries and cherries. In the following months there are also blackberries and apricots. 

Tip: Berries are not only ideal as a classic dessert, they also taste delicious in an otherwise boring green salad. The website also has a large selection of seasonal recipes offered as inspiration every month.
