Citrus crop signals fall's end

I've been struggling for the past few weeks trying to refine my understanding of Florida fall.  (By normal continental standards, there are many who say it doesn't exist.) Just as I was getting some clarity ...

I walk into the grocery store and see this:

Florida Navels are the first orange crop
to ripen, thus marking the start of winter

Florida Navel Oranges mixed in among the continental apples.

That's as sure a sign there is that winter has begun!
