Persimmons (Fuyu) - A Healthy, Easy, Fun Snack!

Fall and winter brings PERSIMMONS!  Many people are not familiar with the fruit and are therefore hesitant to try. There are two different varieties of persimmons: Fuyu and Hachiya. Fuyu, pictured below, are sometimes referred to as 'Apple Persimmons' because they can be eaten like an apple (although they are not apples!).  Hachiya Persimmons are often used for baking.  Stay tuned to Cali's Cuisine for an upcoming recipe with Hachiya Persimmons...  

Fuyu persimmons sliced on the horizontal have a beautiful star appearance.  They are perfect to pack for a work or school lunch.  

Enjoy a Healthy, Easy, Fun Snack...FUYU PERSIMMONS!
