My wife and I like persimmons. Recently I made persimmon sauce also very tasty with grated daikon.

Decorations!? What a waste of food

Dried persimmons are a delicacy. People eat them. It’s a simple way to make Shibagaki (tart persimmons) sweet and edible.

No more a waste of food than hanging chocolate favours and spiced biscuits on the Christmas tree.

They all get eaten.

My grandmother would wait until they fell off the tree them mash them and make great persimmon cookies.

I agree with you but have you seen how much food is wasted with Halloween pumpkins in North America?

cleo, fair enough, if they are eaten not dumped.

Nippori Nick, agreed, in UK also these days. When I was a child it was never seen and Pumpkin was just a rather rare vegetable.
