When I looked at the fruit more closely, it seemed oddly familiar. It was something I had seen before, and I could already taste it just by looking. Yet its name was on the tip of my tongue.
As I often do these days to identify flora and fauna, I posted the pictures on Facebook. The answer came back loud and clear from all quarters: persimmon.
Today, I went and gathered the fruit. I washed it, and I presented a sample to Bow.
Bow was curious and willing to try it, but in the end, he did not seem to like it well enough to finish.
Maybe this evening we will try again.
