Do you know what a persimmon fruit (aka sharon or kaki) is or looks like?
the fruit resemble large tomatoes but are golden. They are best eaten after the first frosts have started to crack the skins, which are extremely astringent. Ideally you cut them open and eat them with a spoon. They grow around the shores of the Mediterranean and in Asia, where they frequently feature in art, especially in Japan. I have two trees in my garden and I love them because the fruit stay on the trees long after the leaves have fallen, adding a touch of winter gold to an otherwise barren scene.
It’s not a colour that I’ve photographed much but here are some taken on our Indian trip
