Hi everybody! What do you call the following two kinds of fruit? Are they eaten where you live? They look quite the same but the first one is crunchy and the second one is soft.

Thanks very much!

#1 I'm not sure. It looks like a tomato on the outside, but not the inside.

#2 looks like a tomato inside & out.

Here in America tomatoes are considered a vegetable even though they are really a fruit.

As far as I can tell they are both PERSIMMONS. I know and have eaten the first one, but I don't know the second.

I've never seen a persimmon. Are they sweet or tart?

I've probably eaten about two persimmons in my life. I remember the ripe fruit as having soft-to-mushy, moderately sweet, slightly aromatic flesh encased in a skin that is physically akin to a tomato's.
