Persimmons with deep red undertones. Look for persimmons that are round and plump with glossy, smooth skin. Avoid blemishes, bruises or cracked skin and ensure it has leaves at the top.
Store them in the refrigerator when ripe.
The fruit can be eaten raw. Wait until they’re extremely soft, so that they feel as if they’re filled with water, before eating their jelly-like insides or else the experience will be very unpleasant. It can take up to a week for one to ripen, but the process can be sped up by storing it in a paper bag with a banana. Fuyu persimmons can be eaten when firm like an apple, skin and all.
