A Persimmon is a very sweet fruit, which could only be described as a ball of syrup. They can be eaten in all stages of life. From hard like an apple, to melting the moment they are touched. They are also used in smoothies and juicers when hard. They come in all different shapes and sizes depending on variety. Some have even been known to leave your mouth feeling "furry" and dry. Other names the fruit go by are Sharon Fruit and Kaki. It contains no stones, no pips, no seeds. Just pure flesh, only the leafy top isn't to be consumed. The leaves of which will go brown well before the fruit has ripened. Best kept in a basement or garage out of the way, but still warm.
