June is the month when the Florida tropical fruit season gets underway in earnest. The long days, increasing temperatures, and start of the rainy season all work together for the next few months
to mature and ripen these delicious fruits. As the summer progresses, different fruits will be ready to harvest as other fruits wind up their season for the year. So don’t miss the Florida tropical fruit bounty!
Below is a list of fruits that are typically ripe during June. But due to the variations in weather patterns throughout the year, the fruits may be ripe a few weeks earlier or later then listed.
Please contact the growers to see when their fruit is at its prime and ready to enjoy!
now until late fall
Florida bananas are packed with SO MUCH more flavor than the grocery store bananas. These bananas are moist, have a delicate texture, and have hints of strawberries and citrus and other subtle tastes.
Our growers also raise cooking bananas, which have a lower sugar content than the dessert bananas,
and they make wonderful tostones and fried plantanos.
