Got my first "Smith's Best" Japanese persimmon -- quite good
A nice rich flavor. Ripened on the tree, or still more so a sapling (in a 25 gallon pot).
Ol' Dr. Smith had a lot to choose from, so his best should be good I suppose.
My in-ground persimmon was bought as a "Tannenashi" but by all evidence is a "Eureka." It was loaded with fruit this year but never achieved the richer flavor when fully ripe that it used to. It ripened better than last year though, and another poster 100-200 miles west of me noted the same blandness then.
