Diospyros ‘Kaki’,’Japanese persimmon'(Diospermum) fruits-P1040259.JPG
To me they look like the fruit of Diospyros melanoxylon locally called Tendu, Temru or Temburni.
Temburni fruits are round where as these have a tapering end. Also the leaves are different.
Have plenty of D.melanoxylon trees on my property at Shahapur. Sending you a photograph of the leaves for comparison. Attachments (1)
