Sharon Fruit

Having originated in the Sharon Valley in Israel, Sharon Fruit is similar to other persimmon varieties, but it has a wonderfully different characteristic. Sharon Fruit are ready-to-eat when they are shipped to us. The entire fruit can be eaten - firm like an apple or soft like a peach. Relatively new to the United States, the Sharon Fruit is already very popular in Europe. Currently available from December to late February, it is a hardy fruit that can be refrigerated for up to 10 days or can be softened at room temperature in a few days. A single Sharon Fruit is rich in Vitamin C and dietary fiber and provides half the recommended daily allowance of Vitamin A (beta carotene). An average size fruit is about 70 calories. The ultimate in flexibility, selecting a Sharon Fruit is simple because they are delicious whether firm or soft.
