Tis’ the season for folks giving us fruits. From the Longan, or Loon Ngan “Dragon Eye” fruit in my last post, to two boxes of Persimmons from Kula, Maui!…
My girlfriend’s mother on Maui sent these to us, which she picked from her friend’s trees in her yard up in Kula. The elevation there is high, which I apparently is an ideal climate for this fruit.
I’d say the flavor and texture is like a cross between a cantaloupe, a pear and an apple, with a firm flesh and thin skin. They say you’re supposed to peel it, but ahh.. too much hassle. I just whack da’ buggah, skin and all. lol They’re pretty sweet, without much acidity.
