'Morris Burton' persimmon
Does anyone know if 'morris burton' fruits need to set or age any to lose astringency once they drop from tree? My tree has fruited this year and the fruits are very sweet compared to many others, slightly smaller sized, wonderful flavor and dark orange red BUT everyone I have picked up and tasted has left a very slight astringent taste. I do not find this trait with early golden, yates, john rick, or ruby. I am wondering if this is simply a normal trait for this variety or if others have experienced this?
