  • The full moon that occurs closest to the Autumn Equinox is called the Harvest Moon.  Most years, the Harvest Moon comes in September, however in some years it occurs in October.
  • Sometimes called the Fruit Moon if a full moon occurs during the first week of September, to keep the Harvest Moon from coming too early in the calendar.
  • Also referred to as the Corn Moon because it marked the time when corn is harvested. The main Indian staples of corn, pumpkins, squash, beans, and wild rice are now ready for gathering.
