I'm up for eating a persimmon, Randy!
Regarding taste, I would be interested in seeing how people, both children and adults, react to new food items while they are blindfolded. I think people may have a taste bias against foods that don't look appealing to them.
Actually, Pizza Hut makes my favorite pizza, as far as chains go. Think I'll pass on the hot dog type, however.
Anybody that's had an unripe persimmon will never, but NEVER, try another one. Once ripe, they're sweet, almost candy-like. The texture is similar to a fig. Come November, you're all invited to my house to taste them. Most first-timers don't like them because they've already made up their minds they won't like anything new. I don't know--maybe it's an acquired taste.
I saw a spot on TV several years ago where little children were fed brocolli. Some kids hated it, making the most awful face imaginable. It's been theorized, perhaps proven, that some people have a taste disfunction (for a lack of a better term) that makes them dislike certain foods. When a child displays that "yuck" face, it's possibly for a good reason. I'm not sure one can ever "acquire a taste".
Thanks Carl, I knew that. But to me a hotdog is already a scary thing - I've read what they put into sausages...
Chris, just so you know, "The Onion" is a satirical website/publication that writes fake comic articles.
However......what is true is that Pizza Hut has a pizza with a crust stuffed with hot dogs. That is real and that is totally gross. I have a feeling The Onion surely had that pizza (among others) in mind when they were lampooning the limits of what humans will eat.
Brrr! I hate to eat things I can't identify and would pay to be out of such a test! I'll eat the left-over persimmons instead.

To the best of my knowledge, I don't believe I've ever eaten a persimmon either.
I think I've said this before, but I don't remember ever eating a persimmon.
Bertold, you made me wish there was a ditch around here with that much asparagus in it.
Made a persimmon cake yest. Need to use up last year's pulp. Really good. The recipe comes out of a little booklet I bought years ago, all about persimmons.
