Precipitation is moderate. Some areas have mild winters and long, hot summers while other areas have harsh winters and short summers.
To truly appreciate the cuisine of North America one must focus on one area at a time. Although many dishes reflect international influences, other recipes are strictly indigenous. The most important Native American crops have generally included corn, beans, squash, pumpkins, sunflowers, wild rice, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, peanuts, avocados, potatoes, and cacao. Broadly speaking, more southern areas have Caribbean flavors while northern areas have more European influences.
