Closing 2016 Hoshigaki Mail Orders

We are now closing hoshigaki mail orders for the 2016 season because our supply of hoshigaki is almost all sold out.  However, if you are able to visit our fruit stand, we still have limited amounts of hoshigaki for sale.

Look for the 2017 order form on our website this coming September. It's always best to get orders in as soon as possible, since the amount we are able to make each year fluctuates.  Making hoshigaki is very weather dependent.  The amount of fruit the trees produce varies as well as the weather conditions that help or hinder the drying process.

For sale now at our fruit stand we have ripe hachiya persimmons, softening maru (chocolate) persimmons, Satusuma mandarins, okusankichi Asian pears, kiwi, pecans, walnuts, The Good Stuff Jam and persimmon cookbooks.

Hoshigaki Orders Open Again

We are again accepting new orders for hoshigaki (Japanese hand-dried persimmons).  If you would like to order hoshigaki through mail order, please send it in to us as soon as possible, since we know we have a very limited supply.

We will fill orders as soon as possible, but mail orders received after December 15th may not arrive in time for Christmas. If you're ordering hoshigaki as a Christmas gift, we recommend notifying the recipient of the order and letting them know that their gift should arrive soon.

Hoshigaki is also still for sale at our fruit stand in limited amounts. If you'd like to pick up more than a few pounds of hoshigaki at our fruit stand, please call us to reserve some.

Hoshigaki Orders and Waiting List

Obaachan Massaging Persimmons
We are sorry to say that we can no longer take any new mail orders for this season's hoshigaki (Japanese hand-dried persimmon).  Our supply was smaller this season and we need to be sure we can fill the orders we have already received. The last few years of drought made it difficult for our trees to produce as much fruit as they used to. We hope that this year's rain will improve the health of our trees so they can produce more persimmons next fall.  If you'd like to be on the waiting list to mail order hoshigaki (in the event that we do have any left after filling all our orders), please email us to let us know. 

At our fruit stand, we are still selling limited amounts of grade A hoshigaki.  Grade A is soft hoshigaki, but not quite as soft as the premium grade that we send through mail order.   If you'd like to order more than a few pounds of grade A hoshigaki to pick up at our fruit stand, please call us to reserve some. You can also call and ask to be on the waiting list for picking up premium grade hoshigaki at the fruit stand (if we do have a supply left after filling orders).
