Persimmon


The persimmon is a tasty fruit, but it takes years upon years to ripen. I've been waiting for weeks for this one to be ripe. I remember we had a persimmon tree when I was a kid and it would frost before they ever ripened. We should have picked them and brought them inside, but I don't remember that ever happening. sold

such a beautiful painting! i've never tried a persimmon.. though i never knew they took so long to ripen either, maybe that's why i don't see them around here often!
