There are mainly two kinds of persimmons, this is one of them and a sweeter and be eaten fresh.
But another one is not eaten fresh, as it's very astringent and need to dry. After drying about 1 month, it becomes very sweet.
About after 1 month.. looks a bit strange?
don't say that and try if you find !
It's also typical and common to see the sight which people hung and dry them from roof in country side of Japan, though I don't see in Osaka city... ：（ so, I always feel autumn when I see this sight and it makes me feel my hometown, too.
However, I hadn't made them by myself till I got a chance last week in my friend house.
They have a persimmon tree in their garden, so we took them off and hung a lot.
Using a long bamboo stick to take them, as we couldn't reach to the high place. Make a cut into the end of bamboo and clip and twist a blanch. It's difficult but so fun!
This is the point to leave about 3-5cm branch when we take from the tree, and it's easy to hold on a string.
After we hung a lot and look at with a Japanese old house, we had sort of nostalgic feelings and persimmons looked just pretty.
I brought one to my apartment as a souvenir, and hung in my balcony.. only that part looks like country side in urban city, and makes me happy.
Can't wait to eat !!
