A beautiful persimmon tree
On the way to church this last sunday, my wife spotted a beautiful little Japanese persimmon tree by the side of the road. Since we were running late, we remembered the spot and came back to it on the way home so I could take a photo.
Here it is:
That's about the size they normally grow. Japanese persimmons are not large trees, unlike their American counterparts. Check out the great wavy shape - it's really a pretty growth pattern. They always remind me of Japanese ink paintings.
This particular tree looks like an astringent Hachiya type, judging by the large acorn-shaped fruits.
I just thought it was great to see a bearing fruit tree in someone's front yard.
Whoever you are, nice work. Enjoy your fruit.
