Summer is an abundant season, the time of year when all our favorite fresh fruits make their appearance at local farm markets and produce stands. Strawberries dripping with juice as they're picked from pick-your-own farms, peaches that take on a golden summer hue, and watermelons crisp and sweet…ready to cool the soul on the hottest of days.

Below are the fruits in season during the summer, along with their health benefits and our favorite recipe for each. It's the perfect time of year to eat healthy, fresh foods after months of limited choices. Place your mouse over each picture to get information and the recipe for each fruit.
