We are in voluntary lockdown here in Florida, with all bars closed and most restaurants doing curbside takeout only. This gave me the opportunity to peruse the property, and I came across some unknown fruit. The fruit is just starting to ripen, and it is about 2 in. in diameter. The skin is thin – much thinner than an orange. Most of the fruit is currently orange colored, but it appears that it turns red when it ripens.
It looks a lot like persimmon, and this area used to be called Persimmon Hollow. For two reasons, however, I do not believe that it is persimmon:
1) This is March, and persimmon are deciduous. We have other persimmon trees on the property that are just starting to leaf out. Here is a photograph of one:
2) The leaves are darker than our persimmons.
Anyway, here is a nice Mini Cooper that was parked at the hardware store last week.
