LA Produce in Season This July

Peaches and Nectarines 

With an irresistible perfume, ripe peaches and nectarines comes into season beginning in July and running through September. Instead of looking at the red overlay, choose peaches and nectarines by looking at the background color. These fruits should be golden with the best pieces having an orangish tint. Peaches are fuzzy, while nectarines are smooth. Remember not to refrigerate them until they’ve softened and become fragrant, as peaches and nectarines continue to ripen after they’ve been picked. 

Tomatoes

Another LA produce staple, tomatoes, come into season beginning in July and running through October. Choosing premium LA produce from a kosher market makes for more flavorful, healthy and quality inspected tomatoes. When choosing tomatoes, look for vibrant color with taut, shiny skin. Avoid tomatoes with soft spots or wrinkly skin. Tomatoes should be kept at room temperature and never refrigerated, as it kills the flavor. For true backyard flavor, premium produce in LA makes for the best salsas, sandwiches and tomato sauces.

Zucchini

With more than 100 varieties of zucchini grown today, they range in size, shape and flavor. Starting in July and running through September, zucchini is in season. Smaller zucchini are best cooked by themselves, while the larger vegetables are better for stuffing and baking. When choosing zucchini, they should be free of cuts and the freshest have bristles of tiny hairs. Thinner, darker zucchini are tender and generally have a richer flavor that the firmer, milder zucchinis.

Melons

Nothing says July produce like a good melon. With a sweet, floral flavor, melons are often best paired with salty ingredients like blue cheese. When stored at room temperature, melons continue to ripen after they’ve been harvested. Melons can be refrigerated overnight if you enjoy them chilled, but much longer than that can result in soft spots and pitting. When choosing netted melons, like cantaloupe, fragrance is the best indicator of quality and ripeness. Smooth-rind melons like honeydew are best chosen based on color, which should be rich and creamy with a nearly waxy feel.
