For The Love Of Persimmon

6th Feb 2009

I’m sure you’ve heard of the word “Persimmon” before. Probably even seen how the actual fruit looked like.

Unlike me, the only time I’ve heard of the word “Persimmon” is when I go air freshener shopping. There’s like a variety of scents sitting on the rack, one of them would be “Persimmon”. And to be honest, I’ve never seen the real Persimmon before! :-P

So when Bunny (I’ll refer my bf as “Bunny” from now onwards. haha!) took me to a fruit seller to buy “Sharon fruit”, I was like Sharon?? What on earth is a Sharon fruit?!

He took a box, paid for it. Upon reaching home, he gave me the box and it read:

“Sharon fruit – The sweetest persimmon, ever!”


For all you sampalau people like me, this is how the Sharon fruit (Persimmon) looked like.


I must say, I was reluctant to eat that fruit when I first saw it. Somehow, it reminded me of eggplants/brinjals.. or tomatoes. But Bunny insisted I take a bite, so bite I did.

WOOT! Woot!

I kinda like the taste! It tasted really sweet, juicy.. something like buah tampoi, only much better. You should try it.. they’re really yummy. In fact, I’m thinking of planting a few Persimmon trees around our house someday. LOL. Well, provided that Persimmons could grow in Asia that is….

PS: Hey, “Persimmon” sounds like “Gene Simmons”.. don’t you think? hahaha

    I’m not sure if they’re available at any hypermarket as I’ve never noticed them whenever I do my grocery shopping. They probably have it…? :-D

    Hahaha.. It’s as normal a fruit as bananas for us in our household. Recently I had to throw a bunch. I forgot that hubby bought it and then we left for kk. After a month there, came back, baru nampak the persimmons all lembik in the fridge. haha.

    But I always knew it as persimmons, not Sharon Fruit. Well, at least I learnt something today. hehehe. :)
