From apples and apricots to the state's famed huckleberries and sweet summer tomatoes, see what's in season when in Idaho below.

Growing seasons and crop availability will vary year to year and by microclimates within the state. In the warmest areas, seasons start earlier and last longer (some items like greens, carrots, beets, and radishes may be harvested year-round in the most temperate areas); in colder areas harvest times start later and end sooner.

You can also look up produce by seasons: spring, summer, fall, winter.
