Persimmon, Hachiya, Organic, Each
Ripe Hachiya persimmons have a very soft, delicate, and squishy feel, similar in consistency to a water balloon when squeezed. The ripe fruits also contain a sweet, honeyed flavor with subtle nuances of brown sugar, cinnamon, mango, and apricot.
Hachiya persimmons should be fully ripened before consumption, and the ripening process ranges from a few days to a few weeks, depending on the firmness of the flesh. Hachiya persimmons can be left to ripen on the counter at room temperature, and once soft and gelatinous, the flesh can be eaten fresh, spooned over oatmeal, yogurt, pancakes, and ice cream, or blended into sauces. The ripe fruits are also popularly used in custards and puddings or incorporated into baked goods such as bread, cakes, pies, and muffins. In Japan, Hachiya persimmons are simmered into jams, compotes, and preserves, and whole fruits are frozen and eaten as a natural sorbet. The fruits are also traditionally dried and eaten as a chewy snack or used as a sweetener in desserts, purees, and sauces. Hachiya persimmons pair well with spices such as nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, and ginger, maple syrup, vanilla, honey, nuts such as almonds, walnuts, and pistachios, and fruits such as pomegranates, oranges, apples, and pears. Once ripe, Hachiya persimmons should be immediately consumed for the best quality and flavor
Kiwifruit is rich in vitamin C, having ten times more than the equal weight of a lemon. Two fruits have almost twice the vitamin C of an orange and more potassium than a comparable serving of bananas. High in fiber, it also offers vitamin A, Vitamin E, calcium and iron. Credit goes to all those little black seeds, as they act much like grains, providing lots of nutrition.
Hachiya persimmons are an excellent source of vitamin C, an antioxidant that boosts the immune system and reduces inflammation. The fruits are also a good source of fiber to regulate the digestive tract, provide some calcium to strengthen bones, and contain lower amounts of iron and vitamin A.
