Title: Message
Here are some likely sources of good persimmon recipes:
The Persimmon Cookbook at has a number of recipes that read very good.
Another good collection of recipes is at
Three persimmon pudding recipes that won first prize at the Mitchell, Ind., Persimmon Festival are at
Finally, Dave Wilson nursery has a collection of recipes using kaki, or oriental persimmons, at
I suggest you try native persimmons like those you've been lucky enough to have been offered in any recipe in which the persimmons are pureed and then cooked.  I say this because really ripe native persimmons are VERY soft and probably not a good choice in a recipe
in which the fruit is not cooked.  -- Sam Brungardt, St. Paul, Minn.

Our neighbor has invited us to take as many persimmons as we want.  These are small (large marble sized) fruit...with very good flavor from huge trees on his property (makes picking interesting...any suggestions?)


I'm looking for good persimmon recipes and in particular ways to preserve the harvest.  Thanks!
