***Tropical Persimmons are currently available for Pre-Order. When placing a Pre-Order, this means the fruit you have ordered is not currently in season, or is extremely limited in season. Your pre-order holds your place in line on our wait list. When Tropical Persimmons come into season and are ready to harvest from the trees, you will receive your order as soon as possible.***
Origin: The name Tropical persimmon is a region-specific moniker used in South Florida to describe the Triumph persimmon. Triumph persimmons are believed to be a type of Japanese persimmon. Our Tropical Persimmons are grown on our farm in South Florida and we're excited to share them with you!
Flavor Profile: Unique jelly texture with a sweet taste that reminds us of Fall!
How To Eat: These persimmons will need time to ripen after delivery. Store at room temperature of 70 degrees or above. Ready to eat when very red and VERY soft. It should look like it is about to burst before you bite it. Best eaten on their own, but they can be frozen with bananas and blended into a delicious fruit based ice cream. (see below)
First come first serve, any orders that can't be shipped this season will be reserved for next season.
The total weight of each box varies depending on the size, shape, and mass of the fruit:
- Small Box contains up to 3-5 pounds
- Large Box contains up to 8-10 pounds
- Extra Large Box contains up to 16-20 pounds
- Bulk Box contains up to 34-40 pounds
We ALWAYS recommend ordering a LARGE BOX for the best value, when compared to a Small Box. Because shipping, handling, and delivery are so expensive per package, the Large Box will contain more fruit and ultimately a better value.
*CANNOT SHIP TO CALIFORNIA*
USDA restricts the shipment of Tropical Persimmons from Florida to California at this time. We apologize for the inconvenience.
