Spring tends to kick off the growing season with Stockton’s famous asparagus popping up in February and continuing through June.
In fact, asparagus played a large role in landing Stockton on the agricultural map in 1852 and has grown to be one of California’s largest crops.
Select berries also start coming in this time of year, including strawberries in March and cherries in April. You may even spot a U-Pick Farm opening up. Nothing screams spring better than picking and eating locally grown berries, still warm from the sun!
Right on the cusp of summer, sometime in May, farm stands begin offering stone fruits, including apricots, nectarines, peaches and plums. More berries begin appearing as well, like blueberries.
