Persimmon is Japanese fruits in autumn. You can see persimmon’s tree around the suburb. And there are some trees around my house.
We eat it row (Amagaki), however, there is other way to eat. It is dry fruits of persimmon. (Hoshigaki) Two types of persimmon, sweet and astringent persimmons.
To be sure, we can’t eat astringent ones row. However, when it is dried, taste is changed sweet. It will be chemical reaction. I think that this is a wisdom of Japanese ancient people. I like both. We can eat it in only this autumn season.
