This nifty infographic from the USDA breaks down some fun facts about spring foods. For instance, did you know pineapple is a hallmark fruit of the season?

This sweet tropical fruit is actually 13% cheaper at Easter than at any other time of the year. It became a staple for holiday dishes like pineapple upside cake and a garnish for dishes like baked ham.

Asparagus is the quintessential spring vegetable. But did you know it costs 25% less at Easter than during the rest of the year. Another amazing asparagus fact: almost 100% of the asparagus grown in the United States comes from California, Michigan and Washington?
