Dear list members,
In Japan, here is a variety of Kaki persimmon called Shujo or Shijo.  It is a variety for sun drying only.  I have eaten these dried persimmons and they taste something between Indian dried jaggery and chocolates.
The drying is done on a very large scale.  Here is a picture of cut fruits being on all round the house for dying.  I found these dried persimmon very tasty and liked them
