We currently have these selections for both Fruiting Time and Flowering Time.

Late winter and early spring
Spring
Late spring or early summer
Summer
Late summer or early fall
Fall
Late fall or early winter
Winter
Other

There are two other "Times" that I frequently run across, primarily with tropical and sub-tropical plants.

Plants that can bloom the year around and therefor can have fruit the year around. This can be stated by checking each of the four seasons or all checkboxes except Other or by adding a checkbox Year around.

Plants that will bloom, and likewise set fruit, whenever they please. I believe Bananas (Musa) are a good example. I'm not sure how to state this.

I think "Year Around" works quite nicely. I'll add it to both categories.

It should be Year Round, Dave, not Year Around.
