Day 33: Persimmons

It is rich in minerals calcium and phosphorus, helps boost your hemoglobin count and prevents the adverse effects of anemia, while Vitamin A and carotene content in the fruit helps strengthen your eyesight and heart muscles and promotes the smooth functioning of body processes. Also, vitamin C content in the fruit enhances your immunity substantially. Needless to say, it has all my cravings and attention fixed on it! So here’s a haiku celebrating my favourite fruit:
