I've never tasted persimmon - is it sweet?

K and S said...

hmm, how to describe it Kris, it is sweet and has the texture kinda like bosc pear but more syrupy. hope this helps & hope you get a chance to try it :)

Take care.

We love kaki, too! Sometimes it goes on sale down to $0.99/lb here !(Hawaii.)

K and S said...

That is very reasonable Akiko :) I hope you get some soon too!

Take care.

Are we on the same wave length or what? I just picked up a crate of them (18 count) for 4.40€. Something like 1.38€/kilo. They're the kind that you have to eat when they're overripe though, and not the japanese ones that you can eat like an apple.

Hi Kat - The Missus prefers Hachiya, but they take so darn long to get soft!

K and S said...

Kirk, I wonder if that is the variety that the Japanese dry?!

Take care.

yeah, hachiya is what is used in Japan to dry. Also makes for great pudding.

K and S said...

Thanks Rinshinomori, they never list the type of kaki in the markets, just where it is from, so I never know the difference :)

Take care.
