Unlike the more common pointed Hachiya persimmon, which must be very soft to be eaten, the Fuyu is a non-astringent variety. It is sweet and delicious when it has become orange to orange-red in color and is still firm. A six ounce fruit has only 130 calories and is high in Vitamin A and rich in beta carotene. It is a good source of Vitamin C and fiber.

Delicious sliced while still firm and eaten out of hand, the Fuyu is also delicious when used in cookies, cake and desserts.

This item is perishable and must ship at least 2nd day.
