Full press release
We all make choices about our food every day – whether shopping in the supermarket or whilst looking at the menu in a restaurant. Nowadays, we expect all types of fruit and vegetables to be available to us all year round, but this is not how nature intended it! If we eat according to the seasons, we will always have plenty of variety on our plates.
The iPhone application Seasons helps you to select produce which is in season where you are. With Seasons 3.1, the application for iPhone enters its third year, and now includes data for Australia and an improved search of farmers’ markets.
The comprehensive Seasons databank contains 214 entries across the categories of fruit, vegetables, salad leaves, herbs, mushrooms and nuts, and its well-arranged graphical format makes it easy to navigate quickly. Each individual entry includes a photo, details of domestic cultivation and import seasons, and a short text of background information for those who want to learn more.
Do you know if a particular fruit is currently at the peak of its season with farmers around the corner? Or perhaps it is harvest season on the other hemisphere of our planet? Finding out the origin of each product determines whether it has come straight from the farm or the greenhouse, or whether it has already been stored for months and transported to your area. Purchasing by the season helps you support local growers and producers, and provide fresher food for you and your family.
Using Seasons not only enables you to make informed decisions about what produce to purchase, it also raises your environmental awareness by re-establishing the link with nature. You can simply browse through the listings, view by month, or use the integrated search function.
To help you shop for seasonal produce in your local area, Seasons provides a map-based search of farmers’ markets near you. For this, the application uses external data from the Australian Farmers Market Association, Local Food Advisor, the US Department of Agriculture and Qype.
iPhone users can find the application in the category “Lifestyle” or using the search “Seasons”.
