There’s a break between storms this morning, and we have seriously big waves (18–30 feet/5.5–9 meters) and we have persimmons (3 inches/8 cm)!
Or… persimmons about .25 inch (6.5 mm) depending on what part of the universe you inhabit :)

Is that a fruit that grows locally? I can’t imagine having anything so fabulous growing in my garden. We count ourselves lucky to have pine cones. The mini persimmons are lovely!
Yes! Persimmon trees, though not native, are widely grown here in Northern California. The fruit ripens in late fall – early winter. Often the leaves will fall, and you’ll see bare branches laden with deep orange globes — a favorite of birds and squirrels.
What a pretty fruit. I love their color.
They are pretty, as are the trees! This variety is Fuyu, and is delicious in salads or with yogurt or soft ripe cheeses…
