Fuyu Persimmon

Fuyu persimmons are native to Japan and China but are now commonly grown in California. Fuyu persimmons are a variety of persimmon with no astringency, which means they can be eaten directly out of hand when firm. Fuyus are typically small, round fruit with a yellow-orange to red-orange coloring.  Imagine a tomato that is a bit more squat! They should be kept at room temperature and will hold for about two to three weeks, gradually softening and sweetening into a ripe stage. High in Vitamin A, C, beta-carotene, and fiber, fuyus contain the means to aid your body in a plethora of different ways.  Functionally speaking, they can be added to puddings, cakes, salads, and more!
