Persimmons, or "fruit of the gods," is a succulent, sweet fruit available in early winter in North America. Persimmons, which came to the US around 1856, when the seeds were sent from Japan, are red, brown or orange on the outside and inside often resemble a "flat tomato." Patience is a virtue with the persimmon, as they are incredibly tart and bitter before they reach full ripeness. But after that, ooh la la!

Getting It Ripe!
Ripe persimmons are amazing, but biting into a non-ripe fruit will dry out your mouth in ways you won't soon forget! Store almost-ripe and just-ripe persimmons at room temperature for maximum freshness. You can speed up the ripening process for green persimmons by placing them in a paper bag. Once they are ripe, wrap loosely in plastic and keep in the fridge for 3-4 days. But use them sooner rather than later as they won't keep forever.
