Fall Fruits and Vegetables - What's In Season In Fall?
Artichokes - produce a second, smaller crop in the fall (the first go-around is in the spring) that tends to produce small to medium artichokes.
Cabbage - is bright and crisp when raw and mellows and sweetens the longer it's cooked. The cooler the weather when it's harvested, the sweeter it tends to taste (this effect is called "frost kissed").
Cranberries - native to North America, and are harvested in New England and the Upper Midwest in the fall.
Eggplant - (early fall) comes into season towards the end of summer, but bright shiny heavy-feeling specimens stay in season well into fall.
Pomegranates - only ripen in warmer climates. They are in season starting in October and are usually available fresh through December.
Pumpkins - are the most common winter squash and come into season in September in most areas.
Winter Squash - of all sorts comes into season in early fall and usually last well into winter.
