Persimmon heaven

Korea, Travel November 18, 2012

I love love love persimmons and the season is at it’s best right now. I was so lucky to visit a town called Sangju this weekend which is famous for dried persimmons. In Korea every town seems to be famous for something…


Peeled persimmons


This is how it’s done, they will be ready in about one month


We wanted to buy some and followed the grandmother to her house. Those black greenhouses are full of persimmons and there were so so many of these houses.


They always leave some for the birds.


We originally wanted to buy 50 persimmons but the grandmother insisted we should buy 100. Well you can’t really say no to Korean halmoni

    Aw, who could say no to that halmoni? This story and photos are so lovely. At Seoulist, we are working on a story about persimmons right now—I’ll send it to you when we publish. ^^

    Hienoa nähdä miten noita hedelmiä siellä käsitellään! Täällä ne ovat niin outoja ihmeitä, en oikein tiedä mitä niille pitäisi tehdä. Me ollaan kypsytelty niitä nyt kohta pari viikkoa keittiön pöydällä, yksi maistettiin jo. Mutta maku lienee jotain aivan toista kuin siellä:)
