A fruit for every season?

ipsedixit | Feb 11, 2012 09:34 PM

What fruit -- to you -- symbolizes each of the four seasons?

While I fully understand that with refrigeration and globalization, we can have bananas year-round and apples whenever, and watermelon in the dead of winter, there are certain fruits that either become popular or hit their peak depending on what month(s) we are in the calendar year.

So, with that said, what fruit brings to mind each of the four seasons?

For me:

Winter: Persimmons
Spring: Cherries (with strawberries a close second)
Summer: Watermelon
Fall: Apples
