Fuyu persimmons have a thin reddish-orange skin and soft flesh. They have a rounded ovate beefsteak tomato shape with an indented leaf on their stem end. Ripe fruit offers a pleasant, spicy, sweet flavor and is tannin-free. There are several layers of flavors reminiscent of pear, dates and brown sugar with a cooling finish. Their texture varies from crisp and succulent when young and perfectly ripe to more tender as they mature.
Fuyu persimmons are available from mid-fall through the winter months.
Fuyu persimmons, botanically known as part of Diospyros kaki, are an Oriental persimmon, a category of persimmons divided into two types; astringent and non-astringent. Fuyu persimmons are the most widely cultivated persimmon in the world and the leading non-astringent persimmon on the market, allowing for them to be eaten fresh out of hand at various times during maturation.
