Organic Hachiya Persimmon Duo

Product Details

Approx. 1- 1.4 lb per duo
From Farmer Bryce Loewen:
"At almost every Fall farmers' market, I get at least one potential customer that believes that they don't like persimmons because they have eaten an astringent variety--such as the Hachiya--before it was ready. So many lost sales!"
The Hachiya persimmon is actually even sweeter than the Fuyu, but only when it's so ripe that it feels like a sack of jelly. If you eat it at any point before then, it has a tannic flavor (like a mouthful of mothballs) that rivals the greenest plantain. It can take a while for Hachiyas to ripen, but the good news is that they look stunning while you wait."
Or you can try your hand at Hoshigaki, a difficult, fascinating method of peeling and drying Hachiyas.
