TSURUNOKO (CHOCOLATE) PERSIMMONS

Description: Ovoid in shape, with reddish-orange skin sometimes yellow at the shoulders. Pollination-variant non-astringent type. Referred to as "Chocolate" persimmons because of the dark color of their flesh. When fully pollinated, the inside is dark - called goma in Japan. Sweet, flavor hints of cocoa. Can be eaten firm or soft. Rare.

Season: October

Size: 32 to 40 per metric layer

Suggested uses: Fresh eating, grilled, salads, persimmon pudding.

Shelf life: Store at 32 F, separated from ethylene-producing fruits, to keep firm for several weeks. Do not store between 36 and 50 degrees. 7 to 10 days at cool room temperature, away from other fruit to keep from softening.
