Hachiya Persimmon, Organic and Biodynamic



In season October through December

...and just like that, we've sold out again.  If you put an order in already, we'll fill it, but we're so sorry that we cannot take any more new orders for Hachiyas. Thank you so much for your support!

 

We have two beautiful old Hachiya persimmon trees here at Beck Grove.  Every year they give us just a couple hundred pounds of gorgeous fruit, but the trick is picking it when it's juuuust right!  Hachiyas are an astringent variety, which means they can only be eaten when they are absolutely, positively, 100% ripe (they will feel like a water balloon at this point).  We try to pick them when they are 3-5 days from that point, so they ship well without damage.  They are worth the wait!  A fully ripe Hachiya is about the sweetest fruit you have ever eaten. 

Some things never leave a person:
scent of the hair of one you love,
the texture of persimmons,
in your palm, the ripe weight.

STORING FRUIT: We defer to the experts at the University of California Davis when we recommend storing all of our fruit at room temperature (around 70 degrees Fahrenheit) because refrigerator temperatures (usually 38-42 degrees) can damage them and/or prevent them from ripening to their best flavor and texture. Place produce in an open bowl or on a countertop out of direct sunlight to prevent produce from becoming too warm. Once cut or prepared, all fruits should be refrigerated promptly.

 

Our Passion & Our Promise — Growing and creating the highest quality produce and products. All Natural. No Additives. No Preservatives. No GMOs. Ever.

SHIPPING: We hand pick our persimmons to order and ship only on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays to arrive within 3 days, in order to maintain optimal freshness.
