4 Easy Ways To Use Persimmons Before They’re Out Of Season

4 Easy Ways To Use Persimmons Before They’re Out Of Season

Persimmons hit the produce section of grocery stores and join other fall fruits and vegetables at farmer’s markets during September, October, and November. They are small orange fruits that have a mildly sweet and spicy taste. Always remember this: Fuyu persimmons are the sweetest and those are the ones you should opt for when buying persimmons.

Rich in vitamins A & C and compounds known as shibuol and betulinic acid, persimmons have been known to have anti-cancer properties. In fact, persimmons have been associated with combating breast cancer cells without harming normal breast cells. Is that a coincidence since persimmons arrive every October, which is National Breast Cancer Month? We think not! Persimmons are also rich in B-complex vitamins, which help to stabilize the metabolic system.
