Caqui, in English Persimmon, grow well in Andalucia. This tropical fruit is not edible until the skin turns deep pink and the fruit softens. Then it must be eaten quickly as it soon rots. The skin is bitter but the flesh is extremely sweet and the Spanish love it. Personally I find caqui too sweet and give the ripe fruit to my chickens who relish it. I have not seen it commercially grown or exported as I presume the shelf life of the fruit does not make this very practical.
