Michigan Harvest Calendar (Fruit and Vegetable Availability Guide)

Michigan Harvest Calendar | By Sherry Trautman | Travel-Mi.com

Our Michigan Harvest Calendar is a great fruit and vegetable availability guide with predicted peak fresh market harvest dates for Michigan. Includes strawberries, peaches, cherries, blueberries, pumpkins and more!

Discover Michigan's crop harvest dates so you don't miss the prime time for U Pick fruits and vegetables

Of course, the weather can greatly influence the seasons.  So, the dates below are not exact. They are the average time the item is available on a normal year. Dates also vary depending on the growing location. 

So as a tip, check your intended U Pick location's Facebook page to make sure your desired fruit or vegetable is ready! 

Life expectancy would grow by leaps and bounds if green vegetables smelled as good as bacon.

OMG! Are these not the most beautiful cherries you have ever seen?! My friend and I toured Traverse City, Sutton's Bay and Charlevoix last week and were THRILLED to discover cherries were in season! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Looks like MI is about 4 weeks behind in our produce. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We about lost our minds as we passed these gorgeous cherry trees on our way to Charlevoix. I'm SUPER EMBARRASSED to admit I have never been in the Traverse City area when cherries were blooming. WOW WOW WOW!!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We stopped at several roadside stands and picked up pints of tart cherries...tonight I'm making a cherry crisp....I will post a pic (and the recipe if it's good!). I'll be making it as healthy as possible with oat and coconut flour. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #visitcharlevoix #charlevoix #charlevoixmichigan #traversecitytourism #traversecity #cherries#pieinmyfuture #traversecitymi #traversecitymichigan #cherries #cherrytrees #Michigan #puremichigan #michigantravel #greatlakesstate #michiganstate #travelingmichigan #greatlakesstateofmind #puremittenpride #lovemichigan #michiganders #exploremichigan #puremittigan #northernmichigan #greatlakesstate #greatlakesstateofmind #greatlakeslocals ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #midwestmoment #michiganders #onlyinmichigan
