309) Try Cachi (Persimmon) 29 Dec 2012

[The following is a designated ‘John-only’ to-do]

I didn’t really know what this fruit was until my sister introduced me to it. She assured me that while it supposedly had a nice flavour, its texture was similar to that of snot. Naturally, I had to give it a try.

After several days of build up discussing all the potential grotesque facial expression I might cycle through while sampling this delectable treat, we finally got around to picking a few up at the grocery store in Italy (this is a common fruit in Northern Italy).

Much to my immediate family’s disappointment, my suffering was minimal and I actually enjoyed this little snack.
