TODAY, Sept. 27, 2020, a friend sent me persimmon fruits for my birthday. She said it was grown in Sagada in the Cordillera. Wow! I said to myself. This is the first time I have known that we can grow persimmon in the Philippines. I love the delectable taste of this fruit but I have only eaten it abroad.
NOT MABOLO – I became curious. I googled persimmon grown in the Philippines. You know what I got? It said the Philippine persimmon is the mabolo! Of course I am very familiar with the mabolo and the Philippine persimmon that I received is definitely not the mabolo.
AM SO EXCITED – I asked my friend to introduce me to the fellow from whom she got the fruits she sent me. She promised to introduce me to him. Wow! I am so excited. Abangan!
