I found my first persimmons!!!

How ironic that we found a persimmon tree on the first day of autumn!  My Husband picked 5 or 6.  They were really smaller than I expected.  I couldn’t wait to get home and cut them.  After a beautiful ride toward the western side of Richmond we got home cut them and………. It was so small I couldn’t tell if they were all knives or all spoons.  These persimmons were the size of a large grape!!!  They were soft and looked ripe; yet they were really small.  For all you persimmon experts, do they usually come that small or are they like any other fruit; comes in various sizes?  The tree was on the side of a busy road so we had to be careful therefore we didn’t get too many.

    Sound a little small to me, from what I have seen.
