Our sweet spray-free persimmons are delicious simply peeled and eaten. They can be eaten at any time – while they are crunchy or once they have ripened further and the flesh has softened.
Known as “food of the gods”, persimmons are hugely popular in Asia, having originated in China. They certainly are a spectacular autumn fruit, hanging like shiny orange lanterns even after their trees have dropped their leaves. Persimmons are high in vitamin C and A – packing 30 times more vitamin A than an apple and more than any other fruit!
Our persimmons are hand-picked and will arrive at your door in perfect condition. They will keep for two to three weeks at room temperature – longer in the fridge. Remember to keep them away from apples unless you want to accelerate ripening.
Available from April to June.
