    Sharon fruit - ??

    Hi everyone. Glad to back at the forum!

    After some months of unemployment, I have finally found a job! I work as Export Manager at a fruit company near my home town.

    The thing is I have met, more than once (i.e. theoretically not an accident or mmistake) the expression "sharon fruit", and I cannot understand what it refers to. I know "stone fruit", "dry fruit", "tropical/exotic fruit", etc. But can anyone please tell me about "sharon fruit", or is it just a mistake which has become generalised?

    Thank you very much. Hope to continue contributing more or less regularly again!

    Greetings,

    Charliedeut

    Hi Bhaisahab,

    I see you changed you avatar! Really nice

    Thank you very much. I know now. But just out of curiosity: do you know why it is called sharon fruit besides persimmon? This is not vital, but since we are at it...

    Thank you again

    Interesting- I have only heard the term persimmon used, not sharon fruit.

    PS Congratulations on getting your job.
