What’s in Season Now

Lettuce
There are 5 distinct types of lettuce: leaf, romaine, crisphead, butterhead and stem. It's heart healthy and has vitamin C and beta-carotene that work together to prevent high cholesterol.
Asaparagus
Asparagus has been prized as an epicurean delight for almost 2,000 years. It’s harvested when it grows to 6 to 8 inches tall. Check out this guide in the The New York Times about how to cook it.
Butternut Squash
This sweet and nutty squash is a good source of vitamins A and C. We found 20+ ways to use it in this article.
Peas: shelling, sugar & snap
You can tell peas are fresh when their pods are firm and green. Once purchased, refrigerate in a plastic bag for up to 3 days. Try these pesto snap peas for an easy side dish.
