That reminds me of blackberries in England.  The myth is that the Devil 
spits on the blackberries on a certain day and they aren't fit to eat after 
that.  I was told this one hot (for England) droughty summer when I kept on 
picking blackberries after the deadline, I think it was Sept 1st.  The next 
year they suddenly went moldy about that time.  Donna
