Fall In Love With Fuyu Persimmons!
November is a wonderful month for many reasons - we’re getting into the holiday season, the Bay Area weather is finally starting to cool, and persimmons are in season! Persimmons are an autumn specialty and are only in peak season from late October to the end of November.
Sigona’s Office Deliveries carries very local Fuyu persimmons, sourced first from Morgan Hill and followed by Dinuba, California. Fuyu persimmons are yellow-orange and flat with a squat shape. Eat these while they are firm and crisp to enjoy their honey-sweet taste. Fuyu persimmons can be eaten like an apple or sliced up to add to a salad.
Fuyu persimmons are about 118 calories each and are a fantastic source of Vitamins A and C, as well as minerals magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium. Fuyu persimmons are an excellent source of fiber, which studies have shown can lead to lowering high cholesterol.
Enjoy eating these fall treats while they last!
