Fuyu Persimmons

Grower: Beck Grove
 
Description: Somewhat resembling a tomato, Fuyu persimmons have a thin reddish-orange skin and soft flesh. Ripe fruit offers a pleasant, spicy, sweet flavor and is tannin-free. Described as having a flavor compared to a blend of mango and papaya, some say it has an apricot overtone. Others say it tastes like an apple and orange mixed together. Whether it is crisp-hard or just slightly soft, this persimmon is ready to be enjoyed. The flatter and crisper Fuyu variety is one of the most popular persimmons available. Absolutely succulent, this tasty fruit is a welcomed sight to its addicted fans.
