​By choosing what’s seasonal, you get fresher, more flavourful, and nutrition-packed fruits. Oh, and they may even help you keep seasonal illnesses at bay.

​1. Oranges

​Loaded with vitamin C, folic acid, and potassium, oranges not only help boost your skin health but also heart and overall health.

​2. Apples

​Apples are rich in dietary fibre and hence, it is known as a pro-digestive fruit. It is advised to eat apples during the morning hours, since they may produce gas at night.

​3. Custard Apple

​Available from August to November, custard apples boast of energy-boosting properties. These fruits are diabetic-friendly, and known to benefit skin, brain, and eye health.

​4. Pomegranate

​Pomegranates are available towards the end of winter, from February onwards to June. They are a good source of vitamins, and are known for its anti-oxidant and anti-viral properties.

​5. Strawberries

​One of the most popular berries in India, strawberry is a seasonal fruit that is loaded with vitamins, especially vitamin C, and copper and magnesium. They also contain omega-3 fatty acids.

​6. Grapes

​Grapes, especially black grapes, are great sources of potassium. And potassium-rich foods are known to be beneficial in protecting people against stroke, loss of muscle mass, and reduced mineral density in bones.

​7. Figs

​Fresh figs may promote digestive health and support bone health, and healthy blood pressure levels. All this is possible due to the high potassium content in the fruit, in addition to other minerals.
