Kaki persimmon, also known as oriental persimmon, are a large acorn-shaped fruit that is seasonally available during winter. These fruits do not taste like Hachiya persimmons despite their visual similarities. Kaki persimmons have a thin orange skin with a crisp apple-like texture and sweet flavor that tastes like a blend of fresh melon, brown sugar, and apricot. Kaki persimmons are devoid of astringency and can be eaten at all stages of ripeness.
These kaki persimmons are grown in Spain similar to Sharoni fruit.
