Fabulous Fuyus are the non-astringent persimmons that can be eaten like apples, peel and all. They are high in vitamins C and A and are a great source of dietary fiber and manganese. Fuyu (short for Fuyugaki) persimmons can be enjoyed in various stages of ripeness: from ever-so-slightly soft to very soft. Whether or not to eat the nutrient-rich peel is a matter of preference. Some love the crunchy texture and sweet infusion it adds, while others don’t enjoy the naturally waxy exterior. Try a taste with the skin on, and if you don’t like it, peel it.
