  1. Hi Jain. That does look so pretty but I have only used persimmons for decoration. My mom used to make what she called persimmon pudding (like banana bread) and it was very good. Hope you are enjoying a wonderful Thanksgiving Day my friend..xxoJudy

  2. There is nothing, NOTHING in this world that has the flavor of a ripe persimmon. It is utterly unforgettable. I ate a fortune in persimmons as a child in the Arkansas woods! HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

    1. Thank you kindly, I hope you too had a wonderful day!

  3. I have never eaten a persimmon. They look delightful.

  4. So pretty! Like Bonnie, I'm a persimmon virgin. :)
