|A 단감 (dan gam) or fuyu persimmon - washed and awaiting my consumption.|

I am happy to say that all of this has now been rectified. I now know that persimmons - or 'Gam' (감) with a hard 'k'-like 'g' as they are known here - are an amazingly delicious and wonderfully fantastic fruit that no one should ever have to live without. I love them. I want to eat them all the time. Not enough of an explanation for you? I suppose I could try to go in for a little more detail ;).
