"The Fruit of the Gods"


In season October through February, persimons are the golden delicious fruits that hang off the trees after the leaves drop in autumn. 


Persimons, native to Japan and China, were first harvested in the United States in the 1850's and are now grown all over the world where the weather is warm enough.

It was known to the ancient Greeks as "the fruit of the gods" and often referred to as "nature's candy".

Cultivation of the fruit extended first to other parts of east Asia, India and Nepal and was later introduced to California and southern Europe in the 1800s and to Brazil in the 1890s.

In the Valencia region of Spain, there is a variegated form of kaki called the "Ribera del Xuquer", "Spanish persimon" or "Rojo Brillante" ("bright red").
