What's hitting its peak in June? Green beans.
Green beans should be crisp and firm. There should be no soft spots or signs of discoloring. It makes easier cooking and much nicer presentation if you'll sort while you're shopping and make sure you're only keeping the straightest beans (they can be extremely kinky).
