I’ve been eating a lot of persimmon recently because they taste super good – sweet, juicy and yummy.
The fruit grows to about the size of an apple and ripens after picking.
Persimmons cost around $8-10 AUD/kg, so around $2 AUD each.
In Europe (when I visited in November 2015), they cost around 3 euros for one kilogram, so they were much cheaper than here.
Persimmon is 95% carb, 2% fat, 3% protein; and high in Vitamins A and C, manganese, and fibre.
I’ll be eating a lot more!!
