Organic persimmon fruit (also known as kaki fruit) are hard to come by, so enjoy these beauties while they’re here. Persimmons have sweet, fragrant, orange flesh, similar to a nectarine in texture. There’s no need to peel them – you can eat the skin.

As well as fruit salad, we love persimmons in savoury salads. A plateful of peppery mixed leaves, crumbled stilton, toasted walnuts and sweet slices of persimmon is a wonderful thing. They’re good sliced into wedges for lunchboxes too.

Varieties/season

The season runs from mid October to early December. Our organic persimmons are grown in the south of Spain by Joaquin Perez. He has been growing organic fruit for more than 10 years.

Cooking

They are best eaten fresh, when still fairly firm. Eat them on their own or try in salads, with poultry, lamb or pork or in desserts.

How to store persimmons

They’ll last about a week at room temperature, or longer in the fridge. Fresh from the farm, so please give them a wash before eating.
