Hachiya Persimmons: 2/$5.00
Tastes and smells like a sweet tropical fruit.
They start out hard and firm, but will soften up and turn almost jelly-like in texture when fully ripe. Be sure to wait until they're totally ripe and soft before consuming.
How to Ripen
Hachiya persimmons can take weeks of patience and careful prodding to ripen depending on how firm they were when you bought them. If they feel rock hard, you may have to wait up to 2 weeks to ripen them out on your counter.
But if you don't want to wait that long, here's a shortcut to speed up ripening: Place the persimmons in a single layer inside a paper bag or a container along with an apple. Make sure to keep them at room temperature and loosely covered to allow for slight air flow. The ethylene gas from the apple will speed up the ripening process so check back every 2 days to see if they're ripe and ready to eat.
How to Eat
Eat fresh. Yep. Cut it in half and dig out with a spoon. The texture is like soft and jelly like with an incredible sweetness.
You can also stick them in the freezer for 24 hours once they’re completely ripe, then cut them in half and dig out the flesh with a spoon. Frozen hachiya persimmons are exactly like sorbet but healthier
