In the food world, we notice most shifts in weather patterns when it comes to growing seasons. Okra usually grows in Texas during early autumn, but this year, it got a late start and was around until a couple of weeks ago.

The two most common varieties of persimmon are Hachiya and Fuyu. Hachiya, when ripe, has the most delicious, sweet flesh, which can be eaten straight up or in puddings or custards.
