Persimmon season only comes for a short time each winter, so when it does, we try to find as many ways as we possibly can to enjoy these candy-like fruits. We grow a special variety of persimmons, known as the Rojo Brillantes, which are a cross between the Hachiya and Fuyu varieties that are most commonly found in grocery stores. The hybridization of the two allows for the best qualities of each to shine through, without the chance of experiencing the "cottonmouth" sensation that can happen with an unripe Hachiya.
As the year comes to a close, we are excited to spend time with loved ones and reflect on a wonderful year! We know this time of year can be busy and stressful as you jump between holiday parties and try to check off your shopping list, so we want to encourage you to take a moment to pause and enjoy a sweet moment with someone special! Here's a recap of special time we shared as a team to celebrate the holidays:
