It is not very common to find persimmons for sale in grocery stores these days. ...but there they were. The sign says they are a Fall fruit ,must be why they are being sold now.
When I was in the second grade, we lived near a relatives dairy farm. Between the house where we lived and our cousin's farm was a long dirt road. On the south side of that road, about halfway down stood a persimmon tree. I will never forget eating one when it was still green, which is something you shouldn't do. It takes all of the moisture out of your mouth....and tastes horrible. Although, when ripe a persimmon is a very sweet delicious fruit.....and from what I read online...it is even healthier than an apple.
Do persimmons grow where you live? Have you ever eaten one before it"s ripe?
I am going to be sporadic the next few days. Not only are we having the large dinner party on Saturday, but several of the out of town guests are staying here. Wish you were here to help :) Janey
