Out of season, when you can find them, peaches are going for $3 to $3.50 per pound. But in May, you'll start seeing peaches at $2 per pound, Romano says.

Best of all, there's an abundance of varieties, including white and yellow peaches, apricots and nectarines. Everything is 25% to 40% off "as we enter the season," Romano says.

Likewise, if you've been craving juicy cherries, May is the month you'll see prices cut in half.

When this year's harvest starts rolling in, prices will be in the range of $7 to $10 per pound, Romano says. That price will drop every week, and by the end of the month, cherries will be $5 per pound.

"That's a biggie," Romano says.
