1 qty = approximately 3 – 4 Persimmon fruits
The Fuyu Persimmon lacks a core, seeds, and tannins (tannins equate to an astringent persimmon). Fuyu Persimmons have a squat and rounded tomato-like shape and capped with an indented leaf on their stem end. They the skin and flesh have pumpkin-colored tones. They possess layers of flavor reminiscent of brown sugar, dates, and pear, with subtleties of cinnamon.
The fruit texture varies from succulent and crisp when young to more tender as they ripen. Fruits are harvested when the skin is dark orange and is ready to eat when still firm.
