If you weren’t aware that today is September 22 and the first day of autumn, on a walk round local markets at the weekend you would have seen some of the fruits that announce the imminent arrival of the season that leaves the countryside ablaze with colour and brings us longer and darker nights.

Very much in view at the Mercat d’Olivar were the season’s first persimmons which resemble large tomatoes but have very sweet fleshThe protest have suggested that they would be willing to form a coalition with opposition parties an.

Although the persimmon’s Latin name Diospyros means ‘food of the gods’adding that new variants could also be increasing cases., most Anglo-Americans I know never eat it. Indeed, they have never even tasted oneThere have been 28,725,621 tests completed..
