Seasonal Treat

My boss gave me a gift yesterday as a refreshment during the weekend work. It was a persimmon: Kaki in Japanese. The persimmons turn orange as they grow ripe. So, it must be the time to eat it, but I wanted to keep it for a while just to see.
Look at the shiny round shape! I found it dignified.....hahaha-it's just fruit, though.
I could see people who have cultivated it with care. You know, how many persimmons could go on the shelves in the market? It's not only about persimmons but also all of agircultural pruducts, I guess. Even if the taste isn't bad, it is doomed to be dumped because of the deformed feature.
The one I got was the pick of the litter!
