My favorite part (I realize I have said this phrase before) about living in California is the fruit. Delicious persimmons of all varieties: sweet and fleshy hachiya, Â and non astringent (read – lower inÂ tannins) Fuyu, or Jiro. Â Pomegranates with the most delicious white seeds (aril actually). Lovely small apples so fragrant that the whole kitchen and dining room smelled like an orchard for days. Kiwi. And black walnuts. I am in love with fall produce.
