A Better Choice For Freshness

Quite an allusive fruit, there is a lot we don’t know about it! Because it is so rare, and not usually a part of a fruit salad, we have researched some of the greatest benefits, how to eat it, and what exactly they are to give you a full guide to persimmons!

What exactly are persimmons

A persimmon is an edible fruit (specifically a berry, if you can believe!) that grows on a variety of trees. When they are ripe, they vary in colour from light and dark red-orange, as well as size and shape!

The skin is tougher than apple skin, and ranges in sweetness depending on how crisp or mushy they are.

We hope we have shed some light on this rare fruit. Be sure to pick some up the next time you’re fruit shopping – it’s always good to eat something new!
