Move over pumpkin-flavored food, persimmons deserve your attention

Before the first official day of fall arrived, we were already bombarded with every pumpkin-flavored item in the market. Pumpkin is the favorite that all the other vegetables and fruits hate this time of year. What about the other fall produce trying to make their comeback after the summer’s heat? 

They need some love too. 

There’s always a few that try to weave their way into the pumpkin phenomenon (I see you sweet potatoes and apples), but one fruit stands out to me in the long list provided by Fruits and Veggies More Matters

I’ll be honest I’ve never heard of persimmons nor been in front of one until recently. But now, everything has changed.

For starters, it looks like the lovechild of tomatoes and peaches, but tastes like the divine name it was given.

The Asian fruit can be used in salads, desserts and drinks. According to Greatist, “compared to apples, persimmons can be considered an even healthier option thanks to their fiber, antioxidants, and minerals.” 

I’m allergic to apples, so I’m already sold on this persimmons idea. 

I decided to research the holy grail of recipes to find some common persimmons recipes and I was not disappointed.

Put down the green juice and try a drink worthy enough to clear your thirst. 

Despite my small fan club, I’m not the only one praising the underrated fruit. It’s name should be known, posted on billboards and hashtag for the world to see.

Just imagine persimmons spice lattes or persimmons donuts? What about carving persimmons and leave them on your front porch? The adorable small fruit can scare all the bad costumes away. 

Move over pumpkins, persimmons are ready to make their name in the world of lattes and candles.  They deserve it, you’ve had your moment to shine long enough.
