What's in Season in September in Colorado

September 7, 2017

September's here— the month where summer and fall collide. While sometimes it may be frustrating that the weather can't make up its mind, we love it here at Grower's Organic. For us, September brings a wonderful mix of end-of-summer and beginning-of-fall produce. 

 

While we're not quite ready to jump into full-fall produce like pumpkins, you will see hints of harder squashes (like delicata) mixed with summer favorites like sweet corn. And, until fall fully rolls in, you better believe we're squeezing in every bite of those sweet, summer heirloom tomatoes. 

 

Here's a list of what's in season in Colorado in September.

Where are the apples and plums?

Although we usually start seeing them around this time, many Colorado organic orchards had a late Spring freeze that hurt their harvest. We will see some, but not as many as years past.
