Rave of the Week: You're Giving Me The Sweetest Persimmon

Look at this beauty! I knew there was a reason fall was my favorite season. There's a bounty of amazing fruits including persimmons in every shape and form. I always virtually overdose on fruits when I come to Korea because they taste so fresh and sweet.

This persimmon, called hongshi in Korean, is no exception. I was never able to find a decent one in LA, honest to God. If they were ripe enough, they didn't taste sweet but ttulbeo, which is to say, not right.

I confess I've been consuming one of these babies every day. Thank God for hoarding! They're like candy except it's all natural sugar and it's addictive as heck.

If anyone knows of a great persimmon purveyor in LA, pray tell!
