The Arizona growing season goes all year long. Mild winters allow for the harvest of cool weather crops and hot summers help make citrus sweet, chiles spicy, and dates ripe. Exactly what is in season in Tuscon or Phoenix and Scottsdale or Flagstaff can differ at any given time, of course, but this will give you a sense of what to expect.
