Apples are generally harvested in late summer and fall, so the quality and flavor of apples available in July may not be as optimal.
Citrus fruits are typically harvested during the winter months, so those available in July may be imported or stored for a long time, resulting in decreased freshness and flavor.
Strawberries are often harvested earlier in the summer, so those available in July may not be as sweet or flavorful as they are during their peak season.
While stone fruits are associated with summer, the specific varieties and optimal harvest times can vary. Some may not be fully ripe or have the best flavor in July.
Watermelons and cantaloupes are typically at their peak in late summer, so those harvested in July may not be as sweet or juicy as they are later in the season.
