Fall Jewel 2014 - KAKI

This year I followed my friend's recommendation and wait to crop KAKI, Japanese persimmons until November.  I kept them covered with a crop net since late September.  
It was a great suggestion.   While my mom's Giant FUYU KAKI ripened at extreme fast rate along with the Figs (in Campbell) I noticed my KAKI are in good shape waiting for the cold front to freeze it over, even.   It will become sweeter.
Some of them have grown larger than any other year's.  I left half more on the tree those that are facing south and southwest.  They seem to have slower ripening rate than the ones that were facing north and northwest.
