Brian (aka Bushboy) is running a monthly challenge where he asks you to post the last photo on your SD card.
The rules are simple:
1. Post the last photo on your SD card or last photo on your phone for November.
2. No editing – who cares if it is out of focus, not framed as you would like or the subject matter didn’t cooperate.
3. You don’t have to have any explanations, just the photo will do
4. Create a Pingback to this post or link in the comments
5. Tag “The Last Photo”
My first Persimmon fruit. Apparently there are two types: astringent, often called hachiya persimmon, and non-astringent, or fuyu. I’m not sure what this one is. I guess the firmer one (fuyu) so I peeled it and sliced it and ate it like an apple.
I found this description of the taste of the fruit online: “They have a silky, slippery texture and taste kind of like the fabulous fruity love child of a mango and a roasted sweet pepper, with some cinnamon in the background. They are rich and tangy and sweet, all at the same time.”
It tasted just like a mango to me. But I do like the internal star pattern.

Maybe we should try the combination of mango, roasted sweet pepper, and cinnamon. Sounds yummy.
I thought so too, so I was rather disappointed with the actual flavour. Less messy than a mango though.
I have never had one. They look unusual though.
Best wishes, Pete. x
Used to come by the name of Sharon fruit.
I might have had one of those in the late 70s. The name rings a bell, but not the taste. x
Just tastes like a regular mango to me.
Most unusual star pattern. The description sounds weird to me. I have a mango and might try a bit of a mix with the other taste flavours and see if it is edible lol Thanks for joining in Jude 🙂 🙂
Don’t you get persimmons over there? 🙄
Can get everything. Benefit of living in a country that goes from Tropical to almost Polar zones
Do you eat them?
No If I find one in season I might give it a go
Love the star pattern
Neat! It reminds me of a sand dollar 🙂
Ah, yes. I knew it looked like something I had seen.
ooh I am only chatting about these on my post today! The ones we buy in Portugal are really really soft ones, I find they take all the moisture from my mouth
They must be the astringent type then. And the flavour is like what?
I can’t tell as can’t cope with the astringent aspect, however MrB says delicious. He buys loads from a small farmer when we’re in Portugal
I don’t much like mango so I doubt I would like these, but you never know. Pretty pics though 🙂 🙂
I suspect I won’t be buying them again.
If it tastes like mango, that’s a good start.
They taste OK once soft enough. But I’d probably choose a mango.
I’ve not eaten a persimmon, so it’s interesting to hear it described. I’m not sure that ‘slippery and silky’ appeals to me, but I like mango, so that’s promising.
Tasted very much like mango and it is easier to eat. Just peel and slice. I find mangoes are quite messy.
I still haven’t figured out yet how to peel a mango properly. I like the sound of the persimmon from that point of view.
