We have the start of leaves turning brown/red/gold/orange and with it rain, wind - the usual cooler temperatures. It's also the start of Feijoa and Kiwifruit season.
Kiwifruit is grown throughout the Waikato/Tauranga areas of NZ. It is a major export here and is the 3rd largest producing country other than Italy and China. I don't care for it much, we have 2 types, golden and green - I much prefer gold.
