In Germany you buy all sorts of mandarines, oranges, etc. (apart from limes and lemons) in the time around christmas. Always seems to be one of my yearly highlights to smell the first peeled mandarine of the season. In Britain they are sold all year around in shops (would be interesting to know if they sell well all time) which makes them completely unattractive to me. Even though orange juice, fruit salad or pretty much anything smelling zesty is a big hit during the warmer months - for German me the actual fruits will forever be connected with winter only.
