I just love this time of the year, lots of persimmons are ripening on the trees here in Florida, they are sweet and juicy and taste like apricot. On mornings that are hectic, I make a smoothie to give me the energy that I need to take me through the morning until lunch. This easy persimmon smoothie is a winner. 

The Difference Between Hachiya and Fuyu Persimmons

Persimmons are available from September through December, there are two kinds that are popular here in the US. The Hachiya variety that is astringent, it is shaped like an acorn or heart, it has to be fully ripened until soft like a tomato before eating. All of the fruit is edible except the calyx and seeds.

The other popular kind, the Fuyu is firmer, crisp and less astringent so it can be eaten even when not fully ripe. Fuyu persimmon looks likes like an orange tomato. 

 Persimmons are sold in Asian supermarkets and most major supermarkets, they are usually sold underripe so it is best to allow them to fully ripen before eating.
