More about Fuyu Japanese Persimmon...

Fuyu is the most popular fresh eating Japanese persimmon in the world. This non-astringent, large, round, flattened fruit has reddish-orange skin when ripe. The shape is usually slightly squarish and flattened, similar to a beefsteak tomato or small pumpkin. Fuyu belongs to the non-astringent types because it is edible both before and after fully ripening, where as astringent varieties are only edible after fully ripening.

You won't have to wait long to enjoy the sweet fruits as Fuyu bears at a young age and is a heavy producer. The deeply orange fruit is firm, crispy and delicately sweet when not fully ripe and darker, jelly-like and amazingly sweet when fully ripe. Most fruits are sweet but Fuyu is like nothing you've ever tasted before. It is not an overwhelming sweet, but a unique, deep honey and deliciously rich type of sweet. The fruit is seedless and is excellent for fresh eating or cooking. 

Health Benefits: Japanese persimmon are a rich source of antioxidants, vitamin A, manganese and fiber, especially soluble fiber. It contains a fair amount of some of the B-complex vitamins, potassium and calcium.
