Rojo Brillante Persimmon

Rojo Brillante Persimmons look like a hachiya but can be eaten like a fuyu; hard as an apple or slightly softer like a peach with skin.  Their bright, shiny orange color makes them stand out on any shelf, much like a grape tomato.  Since they are seedless and coreless, they are incredibly easy to prepare, making rojo brillantes perfect for kids!  They taste like tropical fruit and honey, with noets of peach, apricot, and mango.  Eat them out of hand, add them to a salad, with meat, seafood, or in baked goods!
