Persimmon season

It's once again kaki (or in English it's persimmon) season! If you don't know what a kaki (or persimmon) is, click here. It's a link to Wikipedia's definition. We have 2 kinds, shibu-gaki and ama-gaki.

This is a shibu-gaki tree and fruit.





The trees don't look the same. Just the fruit looks different. The ama-gaki looks like the shibu-gaki except the bottom is flat.



In the last picture there is my White Shepherd, Macy. She just turned 1 on October 7th! Happy Birthday Macy!


 

Here is a picture of persimmons at step 4 of 6.
Step 1: Core and peel
Step 2: Air dry
Step 3: Dry with a dehydrater
Step 4: Air dry again
Step 5: Dehydrate again
Step 6: Flatten

YUMMY!            I'm going to spend some time with my family. Bye!

  2. You're lucky not to live on a fruit farm! It's a lot of work. Picking, weeding, planting, fertilizing, etc.
