These are the same things as persimmons, yes? That's the only name I know them by. Actually, I didn't have my first taste of the fruit until this fall - it's delicious, though I can't eat too many of them at one time.
Yes, they are persimmons!
ohh i didn't know they were called kaki's!! i'm more familiar w/ persimmons.. and i LOVEEE them!! i especially love the soft ones vs. hard ones but they are both yummy!!!
LOVE that color! they look divine.xo Alison
wow, I have never even seen one of those before!
How do you prepare them? I've always wondered. Do you bake them? Or eat the raw? The color is just gorgeous!xo Mary Jop.s. your last image is wonderful!
Mary Jo, I just peel them and eat them raw, but I'm sure you can do more with them. I know my grandma makes cookies out of them =)
I totally loved this as a child! I haven't had one in years though.
