As the weather warms and spring approaches, fresh produce follows suit. While globalization has allowed fruits and vegetables to be available all year round, there are certain periods in the year when specific produce items sell the best. To be successful as a wholesale distributor, it’s essential to know what’s in season during which period.
In the following March fruit and vegetable guide, we’ll go through the most popular produce products for the month of March to maximize sales. We’ll also go over how Silo can help optimize your sales motion.
In-season March fruits
Here are some of the most notable fruits for the month of March.
With spring coming along, consumers start becoming more health-conscious, making fruits like pineapples popular during this period in time.
This exotic fruit is favored by customers due to its rich, satisfying taste and many health benefits. Pineapples include bromelain, which aids in the reduction of inflammation in the body, as well as vitamin C.
This fruit is versatile and can be used in many different dishes, from smoothies to salads.
Grapefruit is another fruit that’s at its peak in March.
Grapefruits are packed with beneficial nutrients like vitamin C and fiber, which work together to strengthen your immune system and keep your digestive system in good working order.
Grapefruits are delicious on their own as a snack or as an addition to other dishes, such as salads or juices.
Another popular March fruit is kiwis. The kiwi may be little in size, but it delivers a powerful punch.
Antioxidants and vitamin C make this fruit useful for warding off damage from free radicals. Fiber-rich kiwis are great for maintaining a healthy digestive tract.
They make excellent additions to smoothies or fruit bowls.
Mangoes, one of the most well-liked tropical fruits, are at their peak of popularity in March.
Rich in vitamin C and antioxidants, mangoes shield cells from damage caused by free radicals. They’re high in fiber, keeping your digestive tract in top shape.
Consumers use mangoes in several different ways, including salsas, desserts, and smoothies.
While this March produce is popular all year round, its popularity is especially prominent during the month of March.
Loaded with potassium and vitamin B6, this fruit has the potential to significantly lower blood pressure while providing benefits for heart health.
Bananas are great not only in smoothies, but oatmeal and cereals as well. Let’s get those kids to school! Am I right?
Here are the vegetables that are popular during March.
Asparagus is at its freshest during this time of the year, enjoyed by consumers who love its flavor, texture, and versatility.
Its high levels of fiber, vitamin C, and folate aid in digestion and immunological function.
Roasted, grilled, or steamed, asparagus is a great addition to salads or pastas, or as a standalone side dish.
Although they’re technically (botanically speaking, at least) a fruit, avocados are known to consumers as vegetables that offer many health benefits.
This pitted March produce contains vitamins B6, C, E, and K, along with magnesium, folate, potassium, and many more components that are vital to your health. These key vitamins and nutrients help in fighting cell damage over time and can slow the decline of memory and thinking.
Avocados are often used by consumers on toast, in guacamole, in salads, or as a spread.
Beets are technically available year round, though you’ll find these vegetables at their freshest in March.
Beets are beneficial because they aid in digestion and maintaining normal blood pressure levels thanks to their high fiber, vitamin C, and potassium content.
In addition to their many uses in cooking and salads, beets are delicious when eaten raw.
March also welcomes crisp and delicious radishes.
Vitamin C, fiber, and potassium are all plentiful in these March vegetables, making them a nutrient-rich food that keeps you healthy.
Radishes are great in salads or on their own as a crisp snack.
Fresh spinach also sees a boost in popularity in March.
Spinach is loaded with essential nutrients like vitamins A, C, and K, in addition to iron and calcium. Spinach aids in maintaining good eyesight, encouraging strong bones, and lowering overall inflammation.
Raw or cooked, this versatile vegetable enhances the flavor of salads, green smoothies, and main dishes.
