What to cook in February? Enjoy bright and juicy citrus fruits, root vegetables, winter greens, and earthy mushrooms. Get cozy with roasted vegetable dishes and soups or stews.
Meyer lemons are citrus fruits that are in season from December to March. They are thought to be a hybrid of a lemon and a mandarin orange. They are sweeter and milder than lemons, which make them such a treat during the winter. Their thin skin can blemish easily, making them hard to transport, so if you come across them be sure to buy some!

Grapefruit is a citrus fruit that is in season from December to March. They are similar to oranges but are larger and more on the tart side. Varieties range from pale yellow in color to a bright ruby hue.
Fennel is a root vegetable that is in season during the cold fall and winter months. The seeds, root, stems, and leaves are all edible. It has a very distinctive flavor very similar to black licorice. The anise flavor of the seeds is perfect for spice blends or seasonings, but is truly versatile to cook with.
Radishes are small, ping-pong ball sized root vegetables! There are so many varieties, that you can usually find a variety available year round (look for watermelon radish and daikon radish in February). Every single part of radishes are edible, including the stems and leaves. They have a peppery bite to them when raw, but mellow out quite a bit when cooked.
Brussels sprouts are leafy vegetables similar to mini cabbages. They are in season from September to March when the weather is cool. They are grown on large stalks and every part of the vegetable is edible, even the stalk leaves!

Potatoes are root vegetables that are grown almost all year round. There are so many varieties of potatoes that they can be harvested from early spring to late fall and can be stored for several months after the harvest. Potatoes are the ultimate comfort food when cooked! From mashed to fried, they are the absolutely delicious.
Portobello mushrooms (also known as portabella mushrooms) are edible mushrooms in the agaricus bisporus (mushroom) family. They are in season from December to March during the cold winter, but are commercially sold year round. They are large, fully grown cremini or baby bella mushrooms.

Kiwis are fuzzy, round little fruits that are in season from September to February here in the Northwest US. They have a distinctive green flesh with tiny black seeds. Although the entire fruit is edible, even the fuzzy skin, many people scoop out the flesh and discard the skin when eating raw (give that skin a try!). They are usually eaten raw, but are great used in baking too!
Parsnips are root vegetables that are in season from October to April. They are a shade of pale yellow or ivory and resemble an albino carrot. Like most root vegetables, they are mostly eaten cooked and are delicious when roasted or mashed.
Oranges are citrus fruits that are in season from January to March. There are a vast number of varieties of oranges, but as a whole they are round with a very orange skin and orange flesh. Oranges are sweet and the entire fruit is enjoyed, including the zest of the skin!
