4myloves: box up your persimmons and send them to Suzanne 3FC! LOL!
I can honestly say, I've never had any slight addiction to fruit, in fact, I could do without fruit altogether, really. I never crave it. But now I have an addiction to kaki persimmons.
They are so good when ripe, I never even consider how to cook with them because they are perfect the way they are. I think it is because: they don't make you pucker in anyway, even gentler than an apple. They also have a richer, buttery, brown sugar flavor.
Each Kaki, depending on size, is 80 - 120 calories (similar to a potato). So, it makes for a good, low-cal dessert.
