Our Tropical Persimmon is in peak season right now. This is a great time to order. The tropical persimmons can only be enjoyed at optimal ripeness. When unripe, they are "chalky", but ripe, they are melt-in-your mouth sweet.
The best way to tell if your persimmon is ripe is by softness. It will also darken significantly in color and be soft enough to burst with a squeeze.
The persimmon all the way on the right is the only persimmon that is ripe. All of the other persimmons are at various stages in the ripening process.
Some of the persimmons are already getting ripe on the trees! Now is a great time to get your hands on this rare persimmon variety.
