Persimmon

These sweet fruits have a unique texture that can be either mushy or firm. They're a good source of vitamin C and fiber, and are used to add a tangy flavor to salads. However, the fruit can also be blended into baked goods or festive drinks. 

Try these persimmon recipes: 
• Persimmon and Blue Cheese Salad With Walnuts
• Sweet Persimmon and Toasted Walnut Bread
• Chinese Chicken and Persimmon Lettuce Wraps
