What's "in season" in November?

Hi all! I'll be making my way back to NOLA for a brief weekend in mid-November before embarking on a cruise. I've only been there for Jazz Fest and am looking forward to seeing the town in a different time. I know that certain seafoods are in season at different times. Anything that I should be trying while there?

    1. Satsumas, assuming the crop survived Gustav... Go to one of the farmers' markets (Tue, Thurs, or Sat) and get some fresh to eat out of hand. Then head to La Divina Gelateria to try their spectacular satsuma & fennel sorbetto (call ahead to insure availabilty).

        Please pardon my ignorance, but what is/are Satsumas?

          They're a japanese mandarin. Very loose-skinned; very juicy and sweet. Some cultivars are still green when ripe, so don't let the color fool you. Most similar to a clementine, i'd say.
