The Kaki Tree (Diospyros kaki)

The Kaki fruit, also known as Persimmon (Diospyros kaki), is now in season. A few days ago I saw the first ripe fruits locally on this tree; some local farmers’ markets have also begun to put this fruit on display.

Try this soft, moist, sweet, delightful fruit. The Mallorcans do. Kaki fruits can be eaten either fresh or dried, raw or cooked.   

If you have a garden, why not get a Kaki plant? You could soon have your own supply of fresh Kaki fruit. The larger garden centres in Mallorca have this plant on sale. The Kaki tree is tall and deciduous with glossy, ovate leaves and makes for a nice garden ornament. It might get a bit messy though, if you do not pick the ripe fruits and leave the Kakis to drop.

By the way, this is my 500th MDP blog entry. A 500 day long voyage, sharing 500 photo snippets with you. Thank you for passing by. 

The photo was taken near Felanitx, Mallorca, Spain. The date: October 18th, 2008. The time was 12:34:57.
