Fruits

Fruit of gods is here ! You guessed it right its Persimmon. Fuyu persimmons have a squat and rounded shape and are capped with an indented leaf. Fuyu persimmons boast an orange pumpkin color on both its skin and flesh. When ripe, Fuyu persimmons possess layers of flavor, reminiscent of pear, dates and brown sugar with nuances of cinnamon. Their texture varies from crisp and succulent when young, to a tender and gelatinous texture as they mature. 
Fuyu persimmons contain significant amounts of fiber and vitamin A. Additionally they contain vitamin C and trace amounts of vitamin E, K and B-6.

Fuyu persimmons are highly versatile as they can be eaten fresh out of hand, added raw to cold dishes, or added to cooked applications like roasts, sauces, jams and jellies. They can be sliced and used as a topping for pizza, pies, tarts, yogurt, and toast. Cooked down and pureed, Fuyu can be used to make persimmon cakes, bread, puddings, ice cream, and pie filling.

These persimmons are grown by small marginal farmers belonging to the HIMGANIC FPO - which is an initiative set up by Singh apple orchards in 2014, with the objective of training & hand - holding local farmers in natural/organic farming and assisting them in marketing their produce.

About Singh Apple Orchard:  
Singh Apple Orchard was established in 1969 and in their own words - believes in “doing it right when no one is looking”. The orchard has been visited by several luminaries including Padmashri Subhash Palekar and Joginder and his team have been playing an instrumental role in spreading organic farming practices in the region.

Fuyu persimmons can be kept at room temperature, but if preferred, can be refrigerated. Do not to store persimmons near apples or other ethylene producing fruits as they are ethylene sensitive and will ripen and spoil quickly when exposed.
