Chris Parisi’s Pick of The Week
Never heard of fuyu fruit? We bet you’ve heard it called by it’s more common name: persimmon! Fuyu is actually a variety of sweet, non-astringent persimmon, and is round with a slightly flattened top, topped by a green stem. The edible peel of sweet persimmons ranges in colour from pale orange to a deep red-orange, and can be eaten when crisp and crunchy or when they’re soft. Did you know that a sweet persimmon contains nearly twice the dietary fibre of an apple? It is also loaded with antioxidants and Vitamin C, making it a great cold-fighter! Keep your persimmons out of the fridge for up to five days. If they get too soft to handle, they’re still great to bake in sweet or savoury tarts.
