Footnote: You can actually eat the peel of fuyu persimmons, so this last step is optional. But, I always peel mine!
Beautiful illustrations! We usually eat the whole ripe persimmon raw. It’s delicious! Have you noticed how when it’s really ripe (or a little frostbitten on the way home from the market) the skin turns almost translucent? Amazing fruit…
Love your style. Its so simple yet beautiful.
In total agreement with you on this one!
I love Persimmons! Fuyu is the kind my family and I get every fall/ winter and we eat them like apples. I leave the peel on cause I like the extra crunch. Thanks for this post! Glad there are others who know and love Persimmons.
I’ve always eyed these little guys in the grocery store and wondered how to eat them! So cool.
Glad to help! You should really give fuyus a try. They’re my favorite!
Deliciously succulent illustrations. Now, I am craving persimmons!
Love your site and drawings! Cheers!
Such a lovely blog and a great idea. Love the style of your drawings and also the font you have to go with them. I don’t think I’ve ever tried a persimmon but I’d like to!
I just saw someone eating one of these yesterday and had never seen it before and now this! I can’t wait to try your way!!
This blog just made my day!
Thank you! You’re too sweet

These are one of the few fruits I’m able to eat without an allergic reaction, my favorite to say the least. I leave the skin on, yumm
