Grown in China and Japan since ancient times, the Fuyu Persimmon variety is particularly non-astringent, and has a delicious sweet, mild flavor. This tomato-shaped fruit can be eaten in any ripeness stage – firm and soft – unlike the acorn-shaped Hachiya Persimmon, which can only be eaten very ripe.
