Mmm, exotic, sweet and firm to the touch; what more could you want? Crisp and succulent when young, soft and custard-like when mature, Sharon Fruit is to die for. Maybe not as luscious as her cousin, Persimmon, who is often at her best when plump and ready to burst at the seams, but Sharon is glowing, good-natured and consistently delectable.
She’s seen in all the best places, although she sometimes plays hard to get, and last week it looked like Sharon had gone to ground. I was heartbroken. Was it something I’d said?
Well, I can’t promise I’ll never look at another fruit, but until Sharon returns, these will have to do…
