“Persimmons are not born soft,”
“But they are valued for their softness.”
“Their ripeness.”

Well you know if I’m out in the woods and I’m seeing persimmon trees,
burgeoning with ripening fruit

    I’ve never tasted a persimmon. What do they taste like – peaches, pears, nectarines. I’ve never seen any in our stores here either.
