October seasonal foods

Seasonal foods are at their best consumption time offering their best taste and aroma, as well as greater availability and lower price. To have a balanced diet it is necessary to eat a variety of foods that provide us with the requirements of energy, carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, vitamins and minerals. Regular intake of fruit and vegetables is lower than recommended, so we would like to invite you to consume these seasonal fruits and vegetables in October.

Season of avocado, persimmon, custard apple, pomegranate, kiwi, mango, apple, pear, grape and banana. In this month the season of figs, peaches, melons and nectarines will end, and the arrival of citrus fruits such as lemons, tangerines and oranges will begin.

This month we highlight the Custard Apple of the Costa Tropical of Granada-Malaga, hand-picked, whose origin in Spain was with the introduction as a tree in the fertile plain of the coast of Granada and Malaga by immigrants returning from America in the 16th and 18th centuries.
