Persimmon Time

Popped out to Dawes this weekend. Had a lovely time hiking the grounds. Was tickled to see the fruit on a persimmon tree:

Seems like usually the animals get to them before I actually see them on the tree. I must confess, I’m not much use in the kitchen but these fruits could almost inspire me to try! I had persimmon pie once and replicating that flavor would be worth an awful lot of effort.

This tree is younger than the one I shared pictures of a few months ago (https://withthemoonontheirwings.wordpress.com/2013/05/23/primordial-texture/) -this one was planted in 1997. The bark isn’t quite as craggy looking as that on the more mature one, but you can see it is getting there. Would love to add one or two to my yard, but, alas, there just isn’t space. I’ll have to save that for my someday-move-to-the-country-dream-file!
