‘Kaki.’ Persimmon. By the time these get ripe, most of the leaves will have fallen off the trees.  But there are two ways to eat your persimmons; one way is when the fruit is rather hard.  They have a very distinct taste, somewhere between an apple and …I think maybe there is no other fruit like it!  The other way to enjoy them is when they are nearly rotten.
