I love persimmons!
The other day while walking in Hobart, I spotted a full & gorgeous persimmon tree. By this time the trees have dropped all their leaves & the bare branches are left with heavy bright fruits, it’s a sight to behold. Anyway, I just couldn’t resist, so I door knocked & the home owner let me pick a few.
These were the astringent variety, when ripe the flesh gets soft & gooey; they’ll make an amazing ice-cream. Now I can’t wait to plant a tree at home, previously I wasn’t sure if they could cope with the climate here..
