Hachiya persimmons are available in the winter months. Hachiya persimmons are rounded, slightly elongated and acorn-shaped, coming to a blunted point at their non-stem end. When fully ripe the fruits are a beautiful deep orange. Another indicator of ripeness is that the fruit should feel like a water balloon when resting in your hand. The flavor is candy sweet and possesses nuances of baking spices, raisins and brown sugar.
