|Persimmon Fruit Trees - Astringent or Non Astringent|
Can you write in the comments "Astringent" or "Non Astringent" so we can see which ones you like best?
If i had to choose I enjoy Astringent Persimmons. The Fruit must be perfectly ripe and almost like Jelly before you can eat it. If you get the timing wrong you will be spitting it out for 1 minute and the sandpaper taste lingers for 5 minutes. But when they are perfectly ripe they are amazing, will stop you from thinking about everything else and just enjoy the moment. Granted eating them is impractical they can fall apart and are sticky and gooey and there is only a very small window where you can eat them but the taste is amazing. Transporting them when they are ready to eat this can be difficult. When growing your own you can control some of these problems.
Non Astringent persimmons however are practical, easy to transport and can be eaten like an apple and even when hard they still taste good.
