The Giant Fuyu Persimmon

This is a very large hybrid of the Fuyu Jiro. The Giant Fuyu ripens in November and is non-astringent. Dark orange color when ripe and has a delicious smooth texture. The tree has outstanding ornamental qualities when it displays its beautiful fall foliage color. Bright orange-scarlet fruit remain on the tree long after the leaves have dropped.  Grows so well in this neck of the woods. My neighbor gave me some just picked from his tree and what a treat they were.
To serve these huge persimmons I slice them into halves and cut into wedges to show their beautiful design inside.

These two were so beautiful I decided to quickly paint them on a 7x5 inches canvas panel to hang in the dining room.

  1. Hi Arthur, what a fun blog you have! I've never tried persimmon. What do they taste like? They look beautiful I can see why you decided to paint them.

    best wishes, Joanna

  2. Hi Joanna, thank you for visiting. The persimmon tastes like the star apple in Asia to me, sweet and juicy, the consistency of mango without being astringent. A combined taste of apricot and grape. Very hard to compare it to any fruit really. You've got to try it to see if I am right. Cheers!

  12. Great pictures. The fruit reminds me of my time in Korea. I love them hard, as yours, or soft, dripping through the fingers. The mermaid post is humorous!

  13. Thank you for stopping by the blog. Your site is so fun and creative that it just seemed to...brighten up the room! You had me at the vegetable carvings (cool mermaid) and how you used your talents to get kids interested in fruits and veggies. I will surely love looking through your older posts!

  16. Most awarded and terrible thing is that Play Bazaar and Satta King Live games are available on the Play Bazaar XYZ and this is the No.1 website since 2016 and most of the people visit to this website after the playbazzar dot com website
