We love a zingy citrus and brussels sprouts salad  as much as the next person, but as Wintery weather drags on, all those leafy greens and root vegetables can get a little dull — so we welcome verdant Spring produce with open farmers market totes. With that in mind, we've compiled a handy guide to what fruits and vegetables we can all look forward to devouring this coming season, from peppery radishes to exotic cherimoyas, and loads in between.
Artichokes  are at their peak from March until June, with petite baby artichokes  available for a slightly truncated season: March through May.
Asparagus  is at its snappiest from March till May.
Cardoons , an Italian staple, are available in Winter, Spring, and early Summer.
The exotic cherimoya  can be found from January to May in a good year.
Chervil  is at its peak in Spring.
Fava bean  harvest signifies the transition from Spring to Summer, as fava beans are typically available April through July.
Fiddlehead fern  season typically only lasts for a few short weeks in May.
Garlic scapes  — the flowering stalks of still-developing garlic bulbs — are typically available for a few weeks sometime between late May and early July.
Leeks  are generally available year-round, with their peak during the Spring season.
While mangoes  don't typically grow in the US, their peak season runs from April through June in the equatorial climes where they're harvested.
The prized morel mushroom  is typically foraged (and therefore available fresh) during the Spring months; throughout the rest of the year, try dried morels.
Stinging nettles  are available in markets January through July.
English peas  — also known as shell peas and garden peas — enjoy a short-lived season during late Spring and early Summer and are at their best in May.
Tender pea shoots and tendrils  are typically available January through May.
Purslane  is typically available from April through December.
Although radishes  are available year-round, it's during Spring and Summer months when one can truly appreciate them for their crisp texture and spicy, juicy bite.
Ramps  are wild onions that have a limited season of about six weeks beginning in April.
Actually a vegetable rather than a fruit, rhubarb  is at its peak from April to June, though it is often available slightly later into the Summer season.
Spring onions  are simply young onions that have been pulled before they develop into conventional onions, and they are available — you guessed it — throughout the Spring season.
Strawberries  are at their sweetest from April to July, though they are available at farmers markets as early as March and as late as October.
