Persimmon - Nightingale (A)

The astringent avraieties live up to the name "Dios pyros" (as above) but the NA (non astringent) are not nearly as good. Nightingale is excellent. Also try Mexican persimmon (Diospyros dignya) and the german medlar which also reward the same patience | Reville Saw - Tabulam, NSW 03-May-2006

Persimmon - Nightingale (A)

Kids love fruit leathers made in a food dryer, made out of pureed persimmon mixed with yoghurt and they also love persimmon blended into a pancake mixture. | Joyce - Pennant Hills, NSW 25-May-2006

Persimmon - Nightingale (A)

Peel a hard but nearly ripe Nightingale persimmon and dry it over an air vent for around ten days - truly dios pyros, an experience to die for! | Adrian Van Leest - Campbell, ACT 07-Jun-2016
