The Fuyu Persimmon: A Fruit Worth Trying this Fall

PersimmonHave you ever tasted a Fuyu persimmon? If not, try this delicious and healthy little treat now while it’s in season (September – December). This fruit is so delicious that the Greeks actually named it “fruit from the gods.” And yes, it is THAT good! Not only is this exotic fruit delicious, it’s packed with nutrition and low in calories, too. The Fuyu persimmon is a great snack for growing children, dieting adults, and well, everyone!

Preparing and Eating the Fuyu Persimmon
Fuyu persimmons are easy to prepare and to eat. Just wash the outside, remove the leaves, slice, and enjoy! Eating the fruit raw is the best way to get all of the nutrition, the easiest and fastest way to prepare them, and arguably the most delicious way to eat a Fuyu persimmon! I prefer it raw served with a slice of cheese. As an added bonus, the Fuyu persimmon just so happens to be a creditable snack on the food program!  Click here to see a video called “How to eat a Fuyu Persimmon – Tips and Preparation.” Read more of this post
