Hi! I’m Mike Tomlinson. Welcome to my California Heartland. I like to grow persimmon trees in my yard because they are relatively pest and disease free. They have remarkable fall color and they have a very unique flavor.
One of the great things about persimmons is they’re ripe in the fall when all the other fruit is already gone. This is the Fuyu persimmon as oppose to the Hachiya persimmon. The best thing about the Fuyu persimmon is that you can eat it when it’s hard unlike the Hachiya persimmon which you have to wait until it’s gooey like jelly. You can eat the Fuyu when it’s still hard, just like an apple, fabulous. Thanks for watching My California Heartland.
