What are the seasonal vegetables? And what seasonal fruit is there?

  1. Seasonal fruit and vegetables are less damaging to the environment than varieties imported from countries outside Europe, shipped by air, or grown in a heated greenhouse.

What are the seasonal vegetables?

  1. Vegetables are most sustainable when they come from the Netherlands from the field or from a greenhouse that does not need much heating. Vegetables from Europe are also often a sustainable choice. In the store it says on the shelf or on the label of the product where your fruit and vegetables come from. You can also ask an employee. It is not stated whether a vegetable comes from a greenhouse that needs a lot of heating. Is the vegetable in the overviews below? Then you can assume that it is a sustainable choice. Always a good choice These vegetables are a sustainable choice all year round, even if they do not come from the Netherlands: Celery Cauliflower Broccoli Iceberg lettuce Kohlrabi Leeks Turnips Radish Beetroot Red cabbage Oxheart cabbage Brussels sprouts Tomato Onion Carrots chicory White cabbage Good choice in the different seasons The following vegetables are seasonal vegetables from the Netherlands in different years:

Which seasonal fruit is there?

  1. A lot of fruit is a sustainable choice all year round, from the Netherlands, but also from further afield. You can buy apples and pears from the Netherlands all year round. Firm fruit such as bananas, citrus fruit and grapes come from further afield, but these come in large numbers at the same time with the truck from Southern Europe or by boat from tropical countries. As a result, the environmental impact is not too bad. Always a good choice The following fruits are a sustainable choice all year round: Apricot Pineapple Apple Banana Lemon Grape Pomegranate Grapefruit Kiwi Coconut Lime tangerine Melon Nectarine Pear (hand and stew) Peach Plum Orange

  1. Is this too much to remember? Then use the mnemonic ABCDE: always good are a peels, bananas, citrus fruit, grapes, and pears. Hallmarks There may be other problems with tropical products. Consider the use of a lot of pesticides and poor working conditions. Then pay attention to quality marks, such as On the way to Planet Proof, the Eko quality mark and Rainforest Alliance. Only a sustainable choice in summer In the Netherlands we grow a lot of soft fruit. That is also a sustainable choice in the summer, such as: Strawberry (this is still from the greenhouse at the beginning of spring) Berry Blackberry Raspberry Cherry Plum
