This page has a table below that tells when each fruit or vegetable is normally ready to be harvested in Italy! We also have a page with links to our own simple instructions on canning, freezing and drying many fruits and vegetables, such as how to make jam, apple butter, applesauce, spaghetti sauce, salsa, pickles, ketchup or freezing corn.
Keep in mind, the climate in Italy is very diverse, from the Alps in the north to Sicily in the Mediterranean. There is even a substantial difference between coastal areas and the mountains in the center of the country..
