The fruit stand also has hachiya persimmons that are soft and ripe. Hachiyas are a variety of persimmon that must be the texture of jello to eat fresh, then they are one of the sweetest varieties. A hard, unripe hachiya has tannic acid will dry out your mouth. You can also still make orders to pick up hoshigaki (Japanese hand-dried persimmons) at our fruit stand, or order hoshigaki through mail order.
Recently, the website Cropmobster (Sacramento County Region) posted a resource alert about our orchard. This website works as an online community exchange platform and social alert service for broadcasting food and agricultural needs and offers. Cropmobster also posted an alert about reducing persimmon waste called, "Honor the Persimmon! Let's Save & Share Them This Season". There are useful resources about persimmons at the end of the post, too.
