Harvest of the Month: Persimmons!

Harvest of the Month: Persimmons!

We think persimmons might just be the new citrus. Persimmons are native to Florida, but so few Florida children have ever had one!

We served Japanese persimmons, a non-astringent variety that is sweet before it softens. Students ate them out of hand, but they are delicious cut up in salads or pureed and served as a topping for yogurt or ice cream parfaits.

Plus they’re orange, so just right for Gator football season.

Thank you, Roy Brown and family of Brown’s Farm in Hawthorne!
