Persimmons are quite delicious once they are ripe. If eaten early (at least some varieties) will put serious "sweaters on your teeth."

Lovely still life, Herman. I can always spot your photo on a page among other photos.

Which persimmons are these? they look different from ours which are hachiya persimmon.
Oh yes, thanks for the information about the wild fig.

Excellent use of the green knife, Herman, the colour contrast is beautifully discordant. Never tried one of these fruit, I have a feeling the ones in our local Sainsburys won't taste the same as these!!

Very tempting. Its underexposed, and increasing exposure makes quite a difference. I would de saturate that knife as its really staeling the show as it is. Good effort though. Mod uploaded.
