raiska-yabalkaFriends brought over this and it took me some time to figure out what it was. In Bulgarian it is called ‘райска ябълка’, which literally translates in English as ‘paradise apple’. Officially known as persimmon – an edible fruit. Digging a bit into the etymology I found out the botanic name comes from Greek, meaning ‘divine fire’. Looks great but tastes strange (for me). The saying – on taste and colour there are no friends – came out true again.
