Seasonal foods

Thought I'd throw this question out....

Advances in agriculture, refrigeration, transportation, etc. have made some previously seasonal foods available year-round, but thankfully some are still only on the market at the proper time. Which are your favorite foods that are available only for a brief few weeks? (The ones where if you blink, they're gone.) And I'm opening it up to all seasons, not just summer.

Mine is white cherries. I like them so much more than the regular cherries, and they're sold for maybe 3 weeks in June/July. I always buy a lot & gorge myself, knowing that they're not always easy to find and are pricey to book.
