This is from Old French seson, from a Latin term which initially meant ‘sowing’ but which later came to mean ‘time of sowing’, from serere ‘to sow’. The sense ‘add savoury flavouring to (a dish)’ was in early use; it comes from the primary sense in Old French which was ‘to ripen, make (fruit) palatable by the influence of the seasons’.
