There are two kinds of persimmon: "kaki" (D.KAKI) which belongs to China, Japan, and Korea; and the American persimmon (D. virginiana).
The oriental persimmons are more astringent and less nutritious than the American, but the American persimmons are smaller and seedier. ...
"Kaki" means "food of the gods" and seems to have originated in Japan. The fruit resembles large, orange tomatoes... At their best, they have a very sweet, honeyed flavour, described as being like a combination of plum, honey, apricot, pumpkin, and mango
Fuyu persimmons (also called Fuji) are tomato-shaped and a brilliant orange and are not astringent when "green" or unripe. .. When choosing one, a persimmon should be plump and extremely soft and pulpy, with undamaged skin. .. The fruits are best eaten raw. ..Fuyu ripens in just a few days at room temperature and remains quite firm.
