Featured Video - Persimmon
A bright orange fruit shaped somewhat like a tomato, there are two types of persimmons - those that are astringent and those that are non-astringent. The fruit available in the greengrocer is most commonly the non-astringent type, and are used in recipes or eaten fully ripe, crisp like an apple.
