Farmers' Market Report October 4, 2013


Tsuru Noko Persimmons

Grower: Penryn Orchard
Description: Perfectly ripe Tsurunoko persimmons are petite, semi-tender, elongated, conical-shaped with a warm orange colored thin skin. The fruit’s flesh the color of brown sugar and cocoa and studded with thin flat seeds. Their flavor reflective of their flesh’s color, filled with warm notes of chocolate, sweet baking spices and honey. Less than ripe fruits will pale in color, texture and flavor leaving a lackluster impression with the only memorable hints reminiscent of chalk.
