The Fuyu Persimmon is a delicious autumn harvest fruit that will rival any slice of holiday pie —even pumpkin! Named by the Greek gods as the “divine fruit.” Their layered flavor is reminiscent of pears, dates, brown sugar and cinnamon. They have a succulent texture that turns slightly gelatinous when ripe. Due to their tender flesh they can be hard to find at ideal ripeness at your grocery store, but Rick picks his persimmons at just the right moment to be sent directly to your door! If you’re already a persimmon lover, bon appétit! If you have yet to try them you are in for a fall treat!

Persimmons should be eaten when ripe! They can definitely make your mouth pucker if they’re not a delightful autumn orange-red. A ripe persimmon will still be firm and crisp, but the flavor will be sweet. When you’re ready to eat your persimmons, cut off the leafy stem, slice lengthwise, and spoon out the tender flesh right into your mouth! The great thing about persimmons is that you can also eat them when overripe. Try slicing your persimmon like a tomato, into wedges, to add to salads. Some people do not enjoy the skin, and choose to blanch (immerse in hot waters, remove with tongs, then peel) or peel it off carefully.
The persimmons were mostly a beautiful orange color. I was hoping for larger fruit, a few were a nice size, but the majority were on the small side. They are sweet and juicy and delicious.
Fuyu persimmons are my favorite fruits during this season. I'm happy to have ordered a box of these and has lasted us for just a week. I intend to buy more because of the quality of the fruit and would like to support small businesses. Thank you!
Received lots of delicious persimmons in the order! Too many for the 2 of us to eat. Looking for some good recipes.
Will order again next year

If I could eat this all year round I would! So yummy!
