TANENASHI PERSIMMONS

Description:Pretty pointed shape more formal and angular than hachiya and lighter skinned, also tends to be smaller. Hybrid of hachiya was supposed to be seedless, but still has seeds, at least in our orchard. The flesh of this fruit remains astringent even when dead soft. The birds only deign to eat them when nothing else is left hanging on the trees, and even then they complain bitterly about its poor quality.
We don't dare pull out the trees as we think they may contribute to the cross-pollination that gives all our other persimmons their superlative sweetness and complexity.

Season: December, January

Size: 20 to 32 per metric layer

Suggested uses: If there is a use for this fruit other than as a decoration we have not found it.

Shelf life: Can be delivered firm to be softened at your convenience. 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 to keep from softening.
