Most of these things are not spring items here. So I voted for asparagus and rhubarb. Cherries and strawberries are more of a summer fruit here, typically in June. Is there a season for lamb, ham, and what the heck is mache? I dont know the season for artichokes either, but it's not a common veggie here. As for easter eggs, they come in chocolate or we dye them :)

Strawberries, Asparaguses and Artichokes!! It is still a bit early for Asparaguses and Artichokes but they will be filling the market stalls very shortly... right now I am practically living on strawberries... it is in the height of the season and the season never last long enough... gotta enjoy while they last!!

this is why I said loosely spring. Lamb & ham are just easter dinner type foods that we always had. asparagus, artichokes & rhubarb are all in season for us right now. cherries and strawberries are kind of a late spring thing here. And mache is like salad greens, very tender. easter eggs, when else do you dye them? I suppose it really depends where you are and your climate.

Well, since strawberries, cherries and rhubarb are the only three things on that list not readily available year round (at least where I am)...and since cherries are more of a summer fruit...I'm gonna go with strawberries.

Will probably go with mache. It has such a lovely flavor.

Used to be able to get fiddlehead ferns which are great, It was available to us only during a few week period during the spring. Have not been able to get them recently where we live, unfortunately.

Course there is nothing better than fresh asparagus.

I voted for other, other being Kumamoto Oysters. Oysters usually are not at their best during the Spring months, but many Kumamoto's can hit their peak starting in March, then really peaking in April and May.

I voted asparagus, strawberries and ham. We do have strawberries in the spring and ham is such an Easter favorite. When I was in Germany the white asparagus was just in and I ate so much of that. Everywhere we went if they had it, that was what I got. I have never seen white asparagus here.
