It is said that the oriental fruit known as ‘Persimmon’ originates from China. But this sweet fruit also grows in Japan, Korea, Burma, the Himalayas, America, Australia. According to research this fruit contains twice as much fiber as apples.
Persimmon trees have very beautiful flowers and produce beautiful fruit too. The reddish-orange fruit has a sweet, not-sweet taste and must be eaten immediately before the texture becomes too soft. While other types of persimmon that are lighter in color usually tend to have a bitter taste until the texture is softer.
