I bought a couple of Persimmons from our local supermarket and I couldn't find the CP for these.
They are a Spanish fruit, about the size of a large apple, with a shiny orange skin. They seem like a cross between an apple and a nectarine. The flesh is soft and juicy, there is no core, stone or pips - you eat the whole thing. I recommend them. Any ideas as to the CP for these?

I guessed as 1.5 CP last week as I wasn't near a pc and that worked for me. Wiki says 18.59g cho per 100g http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Persimmon. They were actually called Kaki in Lidl's and Sharon fuit in most supermarkets but I when I first found them they were persimmons.
