One of my neighbors has a fine persimmon tree in the front yard. Over the years I've admired its pyramidal shape, large glossy leaves, and corrugated bark, but this is the first time I've noticed fruits. They're small, but there's lots of them all over the tree.
Meanwhile, Pomatomus doesn't seem to be working – that dang Fire on the Mountain is still mocking me. Grrr... I may have to resort to something ripply.
