So sweet and delicious these beautiful fruits originally from China are in season from October to February.

More than 100 varieties we are only familiar with two. The fuyu and hachiya persimmons. The fuyu variety the flat and round shape is full of flavor when they are just soft to the touch, but the acorn shape the hachiya needs to be perfectly rip, very soft to touch before it is sweet and flavorful.

Loaded with vitamins, persimmons are good for our heart, immune system, and are an excellent source of powerful antioxidants like carotenoids and flavonoids.
