The fall season is finally here, and as you begin to notice the temperatures dropping and the leaves changing colors, you’ll also see that different seasonal fruits and vegetables are becoming available at your local grocery store or supermarket.

When making your shopping list from September through December, make sure to add these tasty in-season fruits to your list and enjoy all of their fantastic possibilities.


Apples might be thought of as a year-round fruit, but these beauties actually come into season during the autumn in the Northern Hemisphere. While great as a simple snack, you can also try more adventurous recipes—like baked apples with brown sugar or apple cider—by using these little guys.


Cranberry sauce is a staple on Thanksgiving plates every November, so it comes as no surprise that this fruit is at its best during the fall. Tarts, pies, and cakes are some of the places where this “superfood” stands out, but the possibilities are really endless.


Pears are like applesubiquitous year-round—but at their peak during the fall. The summer heat turns these fruits sweet and juicy by the time they are ready for harvest in the fall, after which they can be used in salads, as a snack, or for any of a number of culinary uses.
