FUYU PERSIMMONS

Description: Squat, tomato-shaped fruit, orange skin. Non-astringent type to be eaten when firm like an apple. Rich, sweet flesh is juicy and crisp, reddish orange, sometimes with prized "Goma" - dark streaks due to cross-pollination with our other persimmon varieties. Our persimmons generally have seeds, a sign of good pollination.

Season: Late October, November, early December

Size: 18 to 36 per metric layer

Suggested uses: Fresh eating, salads, grilled, or made into fresh salsa.

Shelf life: Store at 32 F, separated from ethylene-producing fruits, to keep firm for several weeks. Do not store between 36 and 50 degrees. 7 to 10 days at cool room temperature, away from other fruit.
