Saijo Persimmons

saijo persimmons

Not to be mistaken for a tomato, the astringent, self-pollinating persimmon tree that produces a yellowish-orange, sweet fruit is often known as “Saijo”. Common to Korea and Japan, its roots actually go back to ancient China. The fruit has few seeds making it ideal for eating fresh of the tree. In mid-autumn, the persimmons ripen into an oblong fruit with a yellow flesh -perfect for eating.
