Persimmon is known by many names including, Sharon fruit, Japani Phal or fruit in Urdu, and is Diospyros kakiin Latin. However there are different types of Diasporas, including one that bears a black fruit. The one we have in Pakistan is slightly different to the ones I’ve had in Europe. Pakistani variety (Diospyrus lotus) doesn’t leave you with a dry tangy after-taste.
