Nature News: November

Persimmon aka ‘Sharon Fruit’

This variant of the Persimmon or ‘Sharon Fruit’ (Diospyros Kaki), is originally grown in Asia and Japan.

It is very high in Potassium, so good for strong blood, especially at this time of year.

Apparently, in China, you only cut out and eat the ‘tongue’, the ‘middle’ of the fruit, and throw the rest away, as a sign of wealth.

Total Cost: £1 for 18 pieces, Wood Green Market today, 1 November, 2019

❤ November ❤

‘The ninth month of the old Roman year, which began with March. The 11th of November was held to mark the beginning of Winter.

The Anglo-Saxon name for November was ‘Blot-monath’; (Blood-month) the latter name probably alluding to slaughtering cattle about Martinmas for winter consumption.
