Thanks to our local co-op and the lovely produce section, (seriously, they have the best produce section I've seen, hands down) we have been introduced into the wonderful world of persimmons. I don't think any of us had eaten one before so I did some quick research. See video below or just search YouTube for "how to eat a persimmon" and be entertained for quite some time.
The kids were eager to jump right in.
The verdict? They were not an instance hit, but grew on us all. We were happy to see persimmons in the fruit bowl a couple days later when we visited Rob's brother, Marc, and his family in North Carolina. We gobbled them up!
There are several funny persimmon videos out there, but this one is informative.
