Like landscapes, fruits also adapt differently in each season. Some like more heat, others have a milder climate and that is why it is common to find certain species in greater quantity depending on the time of year. The technology has evolved and today we are able to buy most fruits at any time of the year, but a fruit that was harvested in the “right season” has its advantages: it is cheaper, tasty and nutritious, in addition to not needing so many pesticides to grow, since the weather is perfect for her.
