10 fruits not to eat in winter

Do you love eating strawberries, even in winter? Bad idea for your health. Like other fruits, these should be avoided during the winter season. Explanations.

In the supermarket, it is now possible to find and eat fruit all year round… even in the off-season. However, some should not be consumed in winter, recalls our expert, Alexandra Murcier.

Fruits out of season are bad for your health

Should we remember it? Artificially ripened fruits are usually full of pesticides.

Raised in greenhouses – in Spain, Morocco or on the other side of the world – then harvested before maturity and transported by truck, they lack taste, but also nutrients.

Tomatoes that grow in winter would thus display half the vitamin C content of a summer tomato, but also less sugars and polyphenols – antioxidants which fight against free radicals and cellular aging.

In fact, certain fruits “should definitely not be consumed during winter“, recalls Alexandra Murcier.

These are mainly:

  • watermelon;
  • some fishing ;
  • blackcurrant;
  • apricot;
  • blackberry;
  • ⁠cherry;
  • Grapes ;
  • figs;
  • currants;
  • ⁠tomatoes.

These are spring or summer fruits. If we consume them in winter they have little taste because they have not matured naturally and their carbon footprint is bad because they come from far away. Furthermore, they do not tolerate freezing well. However, three exceptions appear on the list: melon, raspberry and mango which freeze well and can be easily reused,” assures the dietitian-nutritionist.
