Grapes

Pirog says we used to eat only California grapes, but there weren't any to be found during cold winter months. In the 1970s the Chilean industry kicked in to solve that problem, and consumption more than doubled. Depending on where you live, if you're chomping on grapes from April to mid-May, they're Mexican grapes; from late May until early November, the fruit is likely from California; and from December through April they come from Chile and sometimes South Africa.

Like little bursts of flavor? Try pomegranates, which are in season in fall and early winter and come from California. Use them on their own or as a topping for yogurt and ice cream. Unlike grapes, you'll need a utensil.
