tomato or maybe one of those little pumpkins,
but it is a sweet, juicy
fruit that is firm when ripe. It
is crisp like an apple, sweet like a pear.
- The Fuyu Persimmon will not
pucker up your mouth like the more familiar Hachiya persimmon.
- The season is short, just late
October, November and sometimes December.
- A Fuyu will retain its pretty
orange color for a year when stored properly.
It is only fair that a
crop that is on
the market for a short time can be preserved so easily.
- Do not refrigerate, unless you
prefer a soft persimmon. When stored
below 55Ã‚Âº F, the Fuyu
will become so soft that you can hardly pick it up
without it collapsing.
- When cooked, the pulp becomes
thicker instead of thinner like most fruit, so you can make
delicious sauces without the addition of a thickener.
