Delicious recipes with persimmons
Persimmon is a difficult fruit for most people. There are two types of persimmons, the Fuyu and the Hachiya. The Fuyu looks like a kind of orange tomato and is best eaten raw. Just like you would eat an apple, but without the skin. The Hachiya, on the other hand, is a bit longer and is only tasty when it is ripe . Then it is very soft and the fruit becomes a bit darker in color on the inside. If you eat these raw, the taste can be very bitter. In the Netherlands we mainly have the Fuyu in the shops.
