After our local possum learnt to eat a hole in the fruit fly covers on our persimmons, we decided to pick them early. They are just starting to turn colour, and I usually pick them with a bit more colour on them. The name translates to “first life from Jiro” and it produces pucker-free fruit. As a matter of fact I am having one for lunch today. We lost about 2 dozen to wildlife.
Please excuse sideways photo. Don't know what to do with this harvest - I may have a look at some jam recipes or chutney. They are simply beautiful served cold with ice-cream.
Our 2 trees are getting a bit old now and I am surprised they are still fruiting, our yield is usually a larger size fruit but this season, they set in odd weather.
Does anyone else have this fruit tree?
