'Tis The Season...

A friend was making a comment about persimmons and Filipinos. He is not particularly into persimmons himself but was wondering why a lot of Filipinos love them. I told him, "I'm not sure why, really, but maybe it has something to do with the familiarity of fruits or their resemblance to native Filipino ones. They taste a little bit like chico, and when you bite into them, the texture resembles that of mangoes." I, for one, am really into persimmons especially the "crispy" ones, and when I peel them I feel like I'm peeling a santol.

uy, maybe you can give me your address and I can tell my mom-in-law to just mail you persimmons from her backyard... nasasayang lang kasi sa akin.

I'll remind you of another fruit. mabolo. hehe. in wikipedia, they say mabolo is a close relative of persimmons. doesn't quite taste like it though. plus, mabolo is furry (right?).
