The Fuyu persimmon is a non-astringent variety that benefits from a trifecta of qualities; it lacks a core, seeds, and tannins. Fuyu persimmons have a squat and rounded shape and are capped with an indented leaf. Fuyu persimmons boast an orange pumpkin color on both its skin and flesh. When ripe, Fuyu persimmons possess layers of flavor, reminiscent of pear, dates and brown sugar with nuances of cinnamon. Their texture varies from crisp and succulent when young, to a tender and gelatinous texture as they mature. Fruits are ready for harvest when skins are deep orange, and unlike most other persimmon types, have no astringency and are ready to eat when still firm
Fuyu persimmons are available from mid-fall through the winter months.
Fuyu persimmons, botanically known as part of Diospyros kaki, are an Asian variety of persimmon. Persimmons are divided into two types, astringent and non-astringent. Fuyu persimmons are the leading non-astringent persimmon on the market and are the most widely cultivated persimmon in the world. Their non-astringency allows for them to be eaten fresh out of hand at various times during maturation. Astringent persimmons, which require being fully ripened prior to eating, are too fragile for shipping, lowering the commercial value of the fruit within a globally distributed food culture.
