Comment
This is a domestic species of persimmon that bears a small fruit the size of a golf ball, with a weight of about 50g. When seeds grow in the fruit, dark brown spots appear around them. The fruit is a little astringent. At present, there are about 20 trees, and the fruit is eaten by local residents. There is a local legend according to which an old couple, who lost their six children, planted a persimmon tree in their backyard, and the tree bore six persimmons, each with six seeds inside. The seeds were given to villagers, who planted them. The tree grew and bore persimmons that resembled the lost children.
