Persimmons - Non-Astringent


500 grams
Non-astringent persimmons are natually sweet and are to be eaten when they are as soft as a tomato.

(Astringent persimmons need to be eaten when very ripe: They should look and feel like a water baloon.)

Persimmons are rich in vitamins A and B, and are a good source of fiber. To get the most nutritional value from persimmons, it’s best to eat them raw. However, you may want to consider making persimmon jam.

Some people prefer to simply scoop out the insides of either type, but the skins are edible. Or leave the skins on and put slices into your favourite salads.

Okainamu Organics

Okainamu: Literally place of the hungry sandflies! Luckily for you Jeremy delivers the best of his organically grown fresh fruit and vegetables to us each week, so you can eat his food, rather than be eaten by New Zealand's small native nuisance, the sandlfy.

Okainamu started as a run down grazing unit in 1982 and has become a wonderful BioGro certified farm and orchard in the Upper Wairoa Gorge. Planting shelter, timber, nut trees and establishing orchards, as well as a quality water supply enabled Jeremy to irrigate and the sheltered north facing property now has diverse plantings of pip fruit, stone fruit, citrus, nuts, kiwi fruit, figs and table grapes.
