Hi, my persimmon trees survived the hot summer here in the Hunter area and I am fighting with possums and birds for the ripening fruits.Can you tell me why they have those brown spots and lines inside?
Thanks, Gerda

Hi Gerda,
If you have a non astringent (NA) persimmons like Fuyju and if you harvest it a bit late, the fruit sometimes have few brown spots inside and it tastes much sweeter. It is normal nothing to worry. Cheers

Hi Gerda

The internal blemishes with your kaki fruit is called internal staining. It's a minor defect and shouldn't affect the flavor of the fruit. It is caused when the tannin cells have burst and oxidized inside the fruit. There is no known prevention to control these minor blemishes inside the fruit.

Happy gardening :-)

Hi David01

Thank you very much for the persimmon fruit from your garden that you have given to me (Dai Dai Maru-A). They all ripened at the same time today. I can tell you that the flavor is superb. The consistency is like a ripe mango minus any hint of acidity and fiber. The sweetness is well balanced neither lacking nor overpowering. We scoop out the juicy orange red flesh direct from the skin like you would of a delightful creamy ice cream in a bowl. No artificial ingredients added. Just the natural goodness of a freshly ripened persimmon fruit - luxurious I would say.

Happy Gardening :-)
