About the Fuyu persimmon
Persimmons date back thousands of years to when they were a vital crop to Asian countries. Its name comes from the Greek "Diospyros," which means "divine fruit." The Fuyu persimmon was introduced to the United States in 1856 when Commander M.C. Perry brought seeds back from a visit to Japan. However, none of the seeds he brought matured, so the U.S. Department of Agriculture imported seeds from several different persimmon varieties, including the Fuyu.
Since then, various types of Fuyu have been created to enhance its hardiness, flavor, and disease resistance, making this variety the most successful and highly cultivated persimmon. China leads the world in production with more than three million tons annually. In the United States, California produces the most, with San Joaquin Valley, Orange County, and Riverside leading the way.
Fuyu persimmons have a short and rounded shape, usually shaped like a tomato. They boast an orange color on their flesh and skin. They lack a true core and tannins, while most don't have seeds.
