Fuyu persimmons have a rounded tomato shape with an indented leaf on their stem end, pumpkin colored tones in both skin and flesh and when ripe, possess flavors reminiscent of pears and dates. Their texture varies from crisp and succulent when young and perfectly ripe to more tender as they mature. Fuyus are considered the most versatile persimmon because of their many possible uses. They can be eaten fresh out of hand, added to cold appetizers and salads, used as a topping in pizza, pies, tarts and even ice cream. The fuyu persimmon is a deeply orange fruit that is firm, crispy and delicately sweet when not fully ripe and darker, jelly-like and amazingly sweet when fully ripe. .The fuyu is a rich source of antioxidants, vitamin A, manganese and fiber, especially soluble fiber.
