    I know what a sharon fruit is, but I have not tasted an one so far. It looks like a tomato, if I'm not mistaken.

    Delicious (especially when overripe :drool:), but also somewhat unappetisingly known as 'kaki'.

    A persimmon, it is of a variety that doesn't get too big and really sweet when ripe but doesn't get crunchy.

    Nearly all of it are cultivated in Israel.

    I guess it does look a bit like a tomato, but is certainly very different when you cut in to it. Much firmer, possibly somewhere between an apple and a mango it texture and how it looks...

    I tried one a few days ago, they don't really taste of anything. They're just really, really sweet and sugary.

    Looks like an orange tomato but intensely sweet almost segmented inside I got one of my friends hooked onto these she sends me a picture now every time she's having one. Strangely enough I've gone off them

    They're amazing! I first tried one in Singapore and then had to get my fix from the Turkish supermarket as Asda etc didn't sell them. Now I think everywhere does. Good in fruit salad or crumble!

    Yup! So good! They go even more sweet so you don't really need to use much sugar either!
