Fuyu persimmons are native to Japan and China but are now commonly grown in California. Fuyu persimmons are a variety of persimmon with no astringency, with means they are eaten when firm and can be eaten directly out of hand. Fuyus are typically small, round fruit with a yellow-orange to red-orange coloring. Fuyus kept at room temperature will hold for about two to three weeks, gradually softening and sweetening to a ripe stage similar to stringent varieties of persimmons. Fuyus are high in Vitamin A and C, beta-carotene, fiber, and can be added to puddings, cakes or salads.
