What's in season: June
To enjoy strawberries at their fragrant, juicy and flavourful best - hold out for the British season, and save on those air miles, too.
A distant cousin of the blackcurrant, gooseberries come in shades of green right through to rich, deep red. They work well in tarts, jams, jellies or as a fool.
If you've a glut in your garden or allotment, make the most of tender broad beans in a mash or purée. They're right at the start of their two month peak in June.
Fresh off the tree or baked into sumptuous desserts, now's the time to start enjoying this plump, sensuous fruit.
