Speedy loves persimmon but this fruit is not easy to find in this country. Last year, they were plentiful in Kuala Lumpur so I bought a few pieces and brought them home for Speedy.
About a month ago, persimmon started showing in some supermarkets. Pricey. Very pricey. The most reasonably priced persimmon that we found was at Unimart in Greenhills. We bought a pack and, after Speedy was done with them, just on a whim, he got some of the seeds and dropped them into one of the unused plan boxes in the garden.
What do you know? Four persimmon seedlings have sprouted and Speedy is very excited. So am I. A persimmon tree would be a welcome addition to our garden.
