Persimmons?

Post by Lauren » Fri Mar 21, 2008 11:01 pm

Havnt heard if they are ok or not. Anyone know? Theyre a bit like a tomatoe but sweet in flavour.

*EDIT* Sorry, Ive heard they are not to be given, then then I've heard otherwise. :? Ive seen a few birdy recipes with persimmons in it, but have seen some lists of what not to feed and persimmons are on it.

I have given persimmons to my birds, but I like them too much to share very often (my friends with a tree live too far away)! If you leave them a while, they will continue to ripen and turn into this lovely sweet mush that the fids adore

:D Excellent! Well, they scoffed down half a persimmon and wanted more! I love them too. Had my first one a few months ago, mum got me hooked on them. Yum! Went to the local shopping centre and found a green grocer that sells the weirdest fruits and vegies, that I'd never even heard of before. We do live in a quite ethnic community, which is great, so many cultures, so many ethnic food shops! :D

Bec, I just google some. :lol: But I'm wanting to buy this..
