Monthly Tip

Persimmon Harvesting

Tip description

Persimmons - Fuyu
Persimmons - Fuyu
Harvest persimmons. Fuyu persimmons are ready to harvest when they have their full orange color and are still slightly firm to the touch. Hachiya persimmons (with the pointy ends) must be soft and have translucent skin. If you eat an unripe Hachiya variety, you will gain a new understanding of the word “astringent”! Cut them off close to the fruit to avoid damage to the branch from yanking them off. The UC Master Gardeners of Solano County have a nice blog posting about Persimmons.
