I had some not-quite ripe NC-10 persimmons that blew out of the tree early,
while still firm and astringent - yellow-orange but not quite with their
full orange color. I froze them, and pulled 'em out last weekend(to make
room in the freezer) - cut 'em into fourths and dried them - haven't had a
chance to taste them yet. I'll try some tonight to see if the astringency
is still present.

Good info Betsy and Lucky.
Lucky, that is the info I was looking for about the astringent ones....the
Fuyus are easy, but the astringent ones a challenge...now I know to peel and
slice while still firm and not worry about the astringency.
Thank you all..........Pete
ps: got a batch started, should be ready tomorrow AM.
