WINTER

What is in season in Winter?

From late December to March is winter. Generally, January and February are the hardest part of winter. Progressively the days get longer with the promise of a new cycle of seasons.

You might think that in winter there are few vegetables in season. Instead, this season is full of colorful, nutritious, and healthy fruits and vegetables for you to enjoy!

It is the citrus fruit season par excellence, including lemon, orange, and clementine.

Root vegetables are in the spotlight too, for example, baked into delicious comfort food.

And, since Fall 2020 has been particularly mild, we can still find vegetables like broccoli even quite late in the season.

DBDP’s Winter In Season Calendar

Here is our calendar for Winter, based on what is produced in the Paris area. In certain cases, the local production is quite small, and we need to choose vegetables coming from the south of France, Italy, and Spain. In any case, the nearest the better.
