Persimmons are the fruit of a tree native to East Asia. They are about the size and shape of a tomato, and can range in color from yellow to orange to red. There are two types of persimmons commonly sold in the US: Hachiya and Fuyu. Monadnock Food Co-op carries Hachiya persimmons, which have a smooth and velvety flesh when perfectly ripe. Hachiyas are typically peeled and pureed into a pulp used for baking, as we did in one of our recipes this week. Fuyu persimmons are best eaten raw like an apple, or chopped up in salads or salsa.
