Poor Persimmon, Silly Sharon fruit

Today livewithfruit has an encounter with the unknown. A regular shopping trip to Morrison’s has revealed something intriguing. It is time to enter the world of duel personalities and ambiguity. This fruit has two names! Please give a cautious welcome to the Sharon fruit aka the Persimmon. Shipped from Israel this is a first for livewithfruit so let’s dive in!

Firstly the Sharon fruit is not easy on the eye. Looking like an unripe Tomato with a peculiar growth sprouting up from the top it has an unappetising aura. However, in the true spirit of livewithfruit we must never judge a book by its cover. Unfortunately sometimes we should. The taste is underwhelming to say the least. Mildly sweet and lacking a fullness or body, the Sharon fruit falls flat. Livewithfruit had to buy a four pack of these and is feeling something of a Plum for doing so.

Livewithfruit had the excitement of going to a ball last week where blog regulars Tipsy Young Lady (TYL) Girl With the Black Dress (GWTBD) and livewithfilm were all in attendance. Needless to say an in-depth discussion of fruit was entered into. Considerable scorn reserved for the strawberry cheesecake but great praise for the freshness and crunch of the Grapes accompanying the cheese board.

  1. I know some people don’t rate Morrissons but I did not believe they were “reviled”. Yes I am one those annoying people who can’t resist a bit of correction.
    Having said that, much kudos for broadening my knowledge of the fruit world. Mind you, having read your review, its unlikely I will be tempted to taste a Sharon/Persimmon. Ugh!

  2. Oh Geronimo the first typos have caused great concern in the livewithfruit camp and full apologies for such sloppiness. Belts will be tightened, words will be spoken and humble pie will be eaten. Many thanks for the continued support. Livewithfruit is grateful.
