Persimmons in a Geelong garden

This morning Ateca and I had a lovely morning tea with a near-neighbour Barbara then a walk around her prolific back garden with numerous fruit trees and vegetables. Two unusual trees (well, to me anyway) were the persimmon tree with an abundance of fruit, and a tamarella tree. I'd never seen either of them until about six years ago, don't remember any in Swan Hill. So here are some photos.

I tasted one this morning and it resembles coconut when you break open a fresh coconut and eat the white flesh. But it's best when a bit overripe they say, as when it's not quite there it leaves an uncomfortable dryness in your mouth. Strange.
