Seasonal treat: persimmons

For me, living in this Mediterranean climate is living in a wonderland. I love the many trees and shrubs that grow in this setting. One of the wonders of the fall are persimmon trees. Once they have lost their leaves, they look like gigantic Christmas trees decorated with large orange globes. I love them.

On a recent passeggiata, I came across this offering. Someone is sharing their persimmon bounty with passers by. They promise that the fruit are 999% pesticide free. With a promise like that, I helped myself to a couple. I don’t actually like the taste of persimmons, but I love their size, shape and color! Fall treasures!
