(for me anyway but probably the rest of you out there knew all about it).
I spotted this at the little fruit and veg stall down our road today and enquired about it to be told
'it is a Kaki and is very good, don't eat the skin'.
I tried it today and wonders of wonders... it is divine! So subtle and sweet, really am a convert and upon further research I discovered it is called a persimmon in English (have always loved the word but never knew what it was). Am now contemplating naming our house that (houses have names here), and ours doesn't have one yet.
We do have quite a few bits of orange about the place.
Apparently this one is from Spain (wouldn't it be cool to see them hanging on trees)!
Am thinking I may need to make an orange flan so that I can use the little stars as garnish.
(Am a bit of a flan - creme caramel addict)
