Latest pics of Hanoi Can anyone name the fruit? (not tomatoes)



Well I bought some of those fruit and they are astringent and sour.. with a hard centre. A little plum-like but definitely not plums.

I did a search on Google images for Persimmon and came up with this fruit...



So I don't think they are Persimmon (sorry Simone!)













So someone out there must know what the fruit below are...


























This on the other hand is a dragonfruit...

I think the fruit is called persimmon. I first discovered and snapped pics of this fruit in Vietnam...have you tried it? It is really, really sweet, sumptuously delicious!

Thanks, Sim! I knew I could rely on a fellow blogger/teacher to know the answer.

I haven't tried them because I didn't know what they were, but I will give 'em a go now...
