Exotic / Specialty Fruit Back to List
Persimmon
Originally from China, the persimmon is also called a date plum. Hachiya and Fuyu are the two main varieties. Hachiya is the taller and the Fuyu the flatter of the two. The Hachiya is best eaten very ripe and soft while the Fuyu is best-enjoyed firm.

Persimmons are available October to December from California, December to February from Israel (called Sharon Fruit), and then from Chile in our spring.
