Have you tried this fruit?

persimmon

 

Persimmon fruit can be found in any grocery store this time of year. I bought a few the other day for 36 cents!

Not having tried it before, I was eager to taste it and incorporate it in recipes.

What does it taste like?

It taste like a cantaloupe-pear hybrid, with a touch of honey.

Although delicious on its own, I decided to make a quick smoothie with it.
