The Persimmon's are ready :o)
It always seems like such a long wait for the Persimmon Tree to ripen and bear it's fruit.
The first year I had about 17-18 pieces of fruit
It's a pretty nice size fruit..and sells expensive at our local store.That's what made me buy
the tree in the first place. Cecil doesn't like the fruit, I'm real happy about that! he eats faster and more than me. :o)
While I'm at it, let me warn you all of what the stores latest tricks are. You ever see a price marked down on the shelf and when you take it to the register, the price is regular? Well, that's the trick, I think it's done intentionally, Why! because it happened to me three days in a row at three different stores. Their excuse is that the clerk stacked them in the wrong place.
Don't believe it! Leave it there on the Counter, they will eventually get tired of re-placing it.These are not little stores doing this . It's the big boys. They figure you will have gotten tired standing in line and the item is one you don't want to come back for ...so what the heck! your going to bite the bullet. Cecil is embarrassing, he talks about it and Loudly! Me I leave it on the counter , give a silent Birdy and walk away! :o) I'm terrible.
