 • Store both varieties at room temperature. Refrigerating them will result in chill damage quite quickly.
 • Persimmons will continue to ripen after they've been harvested. It's best to consume within days of delivery. • You can recognize a Fuyu by its squat shape and flat bottom. The Fuyu is firm, crunchy and mildly sweet. You can eat it just like an apple, skin and all.
Description
Persimmons are high in fiber and Vitamin C, as well as antioxidants, minerals, and B-complex vitamins. Sweet and spicy, they are wonderful in fall salads when sliced, or can be pureed and used in quick breads, cookies, and smoothies.

There are two major varieties available for purchase: Hachiya and Fuyu persimmons. Hachiyas are longer and more oblong in shape, and they must be ripened until the peel is nearly translucent and the pulp inside is as soft and squishy as a water balloon. The insides can be scooped out with a spoon and pureed.

Fuyu persimmons do not need to be ripened for as long, and some people say that they can be eaten like apples, though it is generally recommended that they are peeled before eating. An unripe persimmon will be bitter and sour, so be sure to ripen yours fully. Persimmon puree can be frozen and used later, too.
