We love this fruit, its sweet and crunchy and easy to pack in a lunch box so it's a great alternative to packing an apple and a lot less messy than plums. We have been buying them for some time now and have never had one that doesn't taste good.
Persimon® is the registered trademark used to identify the Rojo Brillante variety of persimmon (with two m’s), grown in the Ribera del Xúquer region and characterised for its firm flesh and lack of astringency (the sharp taste of unripe fruit).
What does Persimon taste like?
Its sweet, delicious flesh is packed with several health promoting nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, and anti-oxidants vital for optimum health, making it the ideal fruit for your lunchbox. My daughter loves this fruit as she can eat it like an apple or we can cut it up to make pretty star shapes and is now her favourite choice!
