  1. I loooove this fruit. love love love! Except, I call it “kakhi”… have you ever heard it called this way? The first time I tried it was in Abruzzo. I buy at at Wal-mart here or Giant Eagle at times but Wal-mart seems to always carry it… Whole Foods has yummy ones too

    1. Ciao Caterina- no never heard of “Kakhi” ;) thanks for sharing! We love persimmons and use them abundantly this season. Wishing you and yours a joyful and peaceful holiday season. Thanks for all your support through the year!
