Now, a few years ago, I was admiring the fruit on the trees when I noticed the do not pick sign nearby. But my friend tipped me off to the fact that that policy has been changed, and you are allowed to pick a few fruit. The day we came, the caretaker actually helped us pick some of these gorgeous persimmons. My middle son, J, and I went with my friend and her daughter, and it was fun for both adults and children. Here's our loot from left to right: pomello, pomegranate, a non-astringent persimmon, and an astringent persimmon.
I didn't pick them, but we also saw tons of oranges, chestnuts, and guava, and my friend told me there were apples there a week ago, but they were all harvested by the time we went.
These next two photos are from a previous visit, but here's the historical building next to the pond:
