France releases list of best fruit & veg for October
The French ministry of agriculture has recommended a list of the best fruit and vegetables you should eat to be healthier, protect the environment, and save money this October.
The seasonal list is a way for the ministry to alert French shoppers to the importance of consuming healthy food that will not break your budget, according to French newspaper Le Figaro.
It is also an attempt to nudge the French towards more seasonal eating, at a time when all fruit and vegetables are increasingly available all year round, despite the changing seasons.
The vegetable list includes: broccoli, carrots, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, pumpkin, squash, courgette, cress, endives, spinach, fennel, green beans, lettuce, sweetcorn, turnip, onion, leek, potato, pumpkin, and radish.
Chives, coriander, sage, and parsley also feature.
The seasonal fruit list recommends chestnuts, quince, figs, raspberries, blueberries, walnuts, vine peaches, pears, apples, plums, quince and grapes.
