It's a great time for berries. The first red gooseberries are here from the Continent - UK to come. English strawberries in full flow, along with speciality berries such as strasberries and pineberries.

UK outdoor rhubarb is still available.

Stone fruit includes cherries, apricots, nectarines and peaches.

It's a fantastic time for melons, with varieties including Charentais, Canteloupe, Piel De Sapo and watermelons.

More niche lines include mangoes, pineapples and kumquats.

UK tomatoes are plentiful, along with a huge range of varieties from the Continent. From Italy, for example, there are Vesuvio and French specialities such as Marmande.

You will still find Jersey Royal potatoes in good volumes.
