Fuyu persimmons drastic measures. Grocery shopping on eBay
I was introduced to fuyu persimmons years ago at the regional market when doing some holiday stockpiling. Now that I have come to love this unique fruit they are no where to be seen. I went to all my local markets and out of the way places, I even went to whole foods but no fuyu persimmons anywhere.
I even went to far as to call the big produce wholesaler at the regional market here and there were none to be had.
Last week while shopping on eBay for some obsolete auto parts it occurred to me to type in fuyu persimmons and much to my delight there was someone selling their own fuyu persimmons from their own trees in California. Well my box of 24 arrived today and now I just have to wait for them to ripen a bit before diving in.
When ripe these taste like an over sweetened apple.
