Robbie Sigona’s Produce Tips: Fuyu Persimmons
- Choose Fuyu persimmons that are firm. They should not yield to pressure.
- Pick Fuyu persimmons that are dark orange in color. The darker they are, the riper and sweeter they are.
- Select Fuyu persimmons that are heavy for their size.
- Search for a Fuyu persimmon with a calyx (stem) that is as green as possible. An older persimmon will have a dry, brownish colored calyx.
