Montenegro has a good climate and its lands are very fertile. It is especially noticeable in autumn – from September to October, when gardens ripen. One of the most famous local fruits is a persimmon or a kaki fruit. Locals call it “japanska jabuka,” which means “Japanese apple.” However, it is widespread in the Balkans, so during harvest season, you can find it not only in fruit shops, but even just on the streets. Be careful! Persimmons can be quite bitter if not ripe. Before eating it, you should ensure that it is fully ripe (fruit should have saturated orange colour and be soft and juicy).
