Persimmons, also known in Latin as “food of the gods”, were first cultivated in Asia. This exotic fruit is good for you and can be eaten raw or added to various salsas and desserts.
Crystal Valley’s sweet and juicy Fuyu persimmons are picked from farms in Chile.
Choose persimmons that are smooth, bright, and plump with their leaves still attached.
If unripe, keep them at room temperature. If ripe, refrigerate.
Wash persimmons with cold water before eating. Next, cut of the leaves and slice into wedges. You can also peel the skin.
Persimmons are great on their own as a snack or topped with a little lime and spice like tajin. They can also be added to salads and salsas and desserts.
