We have a bowl of persimmons too, and eat them as they become ripe. We cut in half, put lemon juice and whipped cream on and eat as is. Persimmon jam sounds good.
I'll try the lemon juice... I've been just eating them plain..better leave a few for that jam I want to try. They truly are delicious. I'll be sure to try the whipped cream too. Thanks for the tips!
I have never eaten persimmon. They look like tomatoes. :0)
Martha, they are about the size of a tomato, but are the consistency of a crisp apple.
Oh, they are so beautiful! I still have never tasted one!
I think they are beautiful too. I would like to just leave them in a bowl to look pretty, but they won't last that long..so I'll start using them tomorrow.
Oh dear! Persimmon s are not one of my favorites. I think my favorite fruit is raspberries--BUT I need to have all the seeds removed! Picky, picky!
Chris, my Persimmon bread might just fool you. Everyone thinks it's pumpkin bread. These are not the big juicy persimmons, but the smaller Apple variety.
I've never had a persimmon either. In fact, I don't think I've even ever seen one. I'll have to try one sometime.
My mother used them, so growing up with them I do have a taste for them.
I'm not sure if these are the same as we call "sharon" fruit here - I think the ones I've seen and tasted have been imported from Israel (?)
It could be. I know they are crisp like an apple and sweet.
I saw pessimism not persimmon. I'm not sure I have ever tried a persimmon, maybe I have and didn't know it. They look like giant cherry peppers. I probably wouldn't like it anyway or it would make me sick. LOL
Before you make that decision, come on out to Southern CA and try my Persimmon Bread..I think you would like it. Perhaps for a price, I could send you a loaf..HaHaHa.
I have never eaten a persimmon but I've always assumed they were very tart.
Actually, they are quite sweet. My dearest doesn't care for them fresh, but loves the Persimmon Bread.
