Fuyu persimmons boast a pumpkin-orange color on both its skin and flesh. The shape of them are similar to tomatoes but with firm flesh. The Fuyu variety is also one of the most well-known non-astringent types. Non-astringent means the persimmon can be eaten fresh, right from the tree, and are crisp like an apple. When Fuyu persimmons are ripe, they have a flavor profile similar to that of pear, dates, and brown sugar with hints of cinnamon. The texture is firm and crisp when first harvested, but with time, Fuyus can become tender with a gelatinous texture.

A great source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C and fiber, Fuyu persimmons are the perfect healthy snack to cut up and eat. You can eat fresh out-of-hand, add raw to cold dishes, or add to cooked applications like roasts, sauces, jams and jellies.

Fuyu Persimmons can be eaten when firm or slightly soft. Look for fruit with a green (not brown) calyx. The skin should be a consistent light orange color, not yellow or green. Store in refrigerator up to 14 days or freeze up to three months.
