Receiving Inspecting:

Choose well-shaped persimmons with good coloring. Some blemishing or discoloration of the skin is acceptable and does not affect eating quality. Avoid green or shriveled persimmons or those with broken skins.

Storage Handling:

Short-term storage recommendation (7 days or less)

  • 32-36° F/0-2° C
  • 90-98% relative humidity
14 to 21 days.

Accelerated softening of flesh indicates exposure to ethylene. Shriveling may occur when ripe fruit is held too long. Water-soaked spots are a symptom of freeze injury.

Usage Ideas:

  • Offer Bresaola-wrapped Fuyu persimmon slices on cheese platters.
