      Dear Friends,
      If you are a persimmon fan, like me, then you'll be happy to hear that at the Raleigh Hills New Seasons yesterday I bought a 25# box of Organic, delicious Hachiya persimmons for only $28.21.  This is, like, stealing, man!  They're usually at least $99 each (with 2-4 per pound).  Not sure if all of the stores are offering the same price.
      Many are ready to eat now and others will ripen in the coming days.  None are overripe.  Actually, I don't think I've ever had an overripe Hachiya, although I have had ones that never really ripened.
      I'm in seventh heaven!  I love their soothing texture and for some reason it always seems like they've had the pumpkin pie spice added into their taste. 
      Sometimes when I eat a ripe Hachiya I feel like it's the same texture as my own cells.  I imagine my body instantly incorporating the persimmon flesh and making use of it's energy.  It feels like a family reunion on a cellular level!  "Hey, muscle cell, it's your old buddy Hachiya!  How ya been?!  Mind if I visit and help out for a while?"
      You can read more about this wonderful persimmon variety at http://www.tonytantillo.com/fruits/persimmons.html, for one.  Gel out, dude!  :)

      p.s.  Our senior dog and our kitten both love persimmon!  Yes, River and Tiger Willy light up whenever I bite into a Hachiya--they know they're going to get some, too!  It's the cutest thing to see a cat rearing up on his hind legs to latch onto a persimmon I'm holding, sinking his little teeth into the orange goo and goin' to town...
