May is here and spring is in full bloom—it can feel like the whole world of produce is available at your fingertips. Not so fast, though. Now is a great time to take a minute and consult which fruits, vegetables, and herbs truly are in season and which you may have to wait a little while longer for.

Why is this important to know? In our globally interconnected world, it’s relatively easy to get whatever produce you need for your restaurant or products at any time of the year. But produce that is out of season can be both poorer quality and much more expensive, eating into margins and costing your business extra money while still not always promising to give you the best possible finished product. More delicate fruits and vegetables that can’t be reliably preserved and stored for use throughout the year might be better off as part of limited edition and seasonal items.

This infographic from Daily Infographic is visually interesting and a great reminder of what’s at its peak right now and what’s right around the corner from being at its best.
