Sharoni persimmons, also known as candy persimmons, is a tomato-shaped fruit that is seasonally available in fall and winter. They are similar to the fuyu persimmon in appearance but are significantly sweeter and more flavorful. Persimmons have a thin orange skin with flesh that changes texture from crisp-crunchy to tender and succulent as they ripen. They have a sweet flavor that is reminiscent of apricot jam and brown sugar with notes of citrus.



Sharoni persimmons are completely without astringency and can eaten at all stages of ripeness. Persimmons are best ripened at room temperature which can be sped up by submerging the fruit in uncooked rice.

 

Sharoni persimmons are grown in Spain and modeled after the Israel Sharon persimmon which are world-renowned for their excellent flavor.
