With such a sweet, unique flavor and gorgeous orange color, the persimmon is one of our favorite autumn fruits! The Hachiya and Fuyu persimmons are the varieties commonly grown in California and have a short season from September to November, peaking in October.

Fuyu persimmons taste amazing raw and eaten fresh like an apple. Hachiya persimmons are best when fully ripe and baked into cookies, cakes and pies. 

With a sweet and unique flavor, the persimmon is a versatile fall fruit!
