Persimmon


Did you know that persimmon is rich in Vitamin C ?
Yet, it seems this fruit is not so popular nowadays.

When I was small, I often saw this trees in many Japanese gardens....

This persimmon was too ripe and became like jelly.
( I like this jelly like ones also. )

Lifted the top part ( calyx or hull ? ) and scooped with this spoon. Sweet... just like jello.
Persimmon is in season right now, so quite reasonable.... 50 yen to 70 yen each. ( in my area.)

If you saw it, try one !
