Persimmon


W-51-Fuji-Persimmons copy.jpg

Variety: Fuyu

 

 

Description:

The Fuyu persimmon is an amazing fruit that personifies all there is good about fall in the world! These little guys have the appearance of small pumpkins with wide dinnerplate leaves topping them. When eaten, the flesh is crisp, juicy, and sweet. When describing a persimmon, most people would say that it's like a cinnamon pumpkin spice apple!


W-50-Hachia-Persimmons.jpg

Variety: Hachia

 

 

Description:

Hachia persimmons are very strange fruits, despite being the most widely known variety. The name means rotting, due to the high concentration of tannin in the skin. Tannin is the ingredient which gives fruit a bitter and waxy taste, though it dissolved throughout the ripening process, leaving a very sweet and mushy orange soup like flesh.
