With the arrival of fall come persimmons. One of the kinds of persimmon called Fuyu persimmons, also called sharon, are in season from September through December. What you need to look out for is that they are firm and have a nice orange color overall with smooth skin. If a persimmon does not comply to this, let it ripen on the counter until it reaches a bright overall coloring and then just eat it or use it in a salad. There are two types of persimmons, the Fuyu is better suited to be eaten as is unlike its counterpart which is used in cooking. The fuyu does not share the tangy taste of its counterpart. Use water and soap to wash your produce thoroughly and then peel it to eat to eat your fuyu persimmon. As easy as that.
