Enjoy Persimmon Season With These 10 Sweet Recipes

There's no better time to try persimmon. In-season October through January, these mild fruits are making their way into salads, desserts and more. Both Instagram-ready and nutrient-rich, persimmons are the perfect fruit of the moment, especially when perfectly ripe.

Keep your eye out for the two main varieties of persimmon. When you want to slice and enjoy a firmer fruit, look for tomato-shaped fuyu persimmon. When you want a soft, jammy texture, get a hachiya and let it ripen very well.
