Return of the Grapefruit

you were probably expecting a Star Wars reference here instead
For those unaware of the climate in southern California, we basically have two seasons: Grapefruit Season, and Persimmon Season (if you ask anybody else, they won't know what you're talking about). What happens is, Earth's magnetic field tells all the grapefruit trees we need fruit by February, and tells all the persimmon trees we need fruit by November. This way we always have something to look forward to! (and oranges are available all year for some reason).  Now of course, persimmons aren't the only thing available in the fall, there's also pineapple guavas and stuff I mentioned in autumn harvest
