Kaki fruit

While at the Battersea community, I saw Joe take this tomato after meal. Having seen all new kinds of food habits I was not very surprised to see him eat a tomato after meals. I said to myself, these people must be really treating tomato as a fruit!  But was surprised when he offered me a slice saying that it is not a tomato!  I wasn't sure.  But when did taste it, it was lovely.  Something like our Indian suppota.  Saju then told me it is the kaki fruit.

The real name of this is Perssimon and is widely cultivated in China.  Surprisingly it does not have seeds!  The fruit looks exactly like a large Bangalore tomato.
