Three unrelated questions

I'm such a fan of this comm; a wealth of random information. =3

Anyway, I have three questions:

1. Fruit seasons. Now, I used to grow apple and pear trees but that was well over ten years ago and now I've managed to forget their seasons. Can anyone tell me when they are in season and when they aren't? If anything, can you direct me to a site that would supply that info? I'm not looking for months really, just the general season.

2. I've been around horses most of my life but for some reason, I'm blanking on this one bit of info. I think it's because . . . well, I've never had an old horse. Anyway, would an older, black horse go a bit gray around the fetlocks and muzzle? I can't remember if they retain their full color or not. I think they fade a bit, but like I said, I'm blanking at the moment.

3. Sunset. Approximately how long does it take for the sun to slip completely past the horizon? I'm talking from the moment it's halfway past that line to full night. Well, not full night, just darkness. I tried to measure the time when I got off work tonight but I had to stop at the grocery store to pick up some things so I know it's less than an hour. *snickers*

Anyway, any and all help is appreciated.
