    Looks like you're full-up on Fuyus. Lovely composition.
  • Rene Rodriguez 6y

    Make sure they are ripe before you eat them.

    Thanks Kim and Kahlee...It's the biggest crop I've ever had ...I just read of what sounds like a delicious way to serve them ...sauteed with a little brown sugar, butter and cinnamon and spooned over ice cream.

    Thanks Rene ...but the Fuyus you can eat crisp like an apple ..Really..

    Yummy thoughts on how you serve over ice cream. Those pretentious persimmon predators are primarily people.

    Um...It's in my fenced backyard...My neighborhood roaming raccoon raider remains the number one suspect predator...Thanks Trevis

    Thanks for commenting Sam and Francesco...They are a wonderful fruit ...they keep very well..,crisp and juicy...,.don't turn brown when cut ....you can eat the peal ...and they ripen when there are very few other fruits ripening.

    What a lovely harvest of fuyus! I'm definitely going to have to get some more this week. Sauteed with brown sugar and paired with ice cream sounds amazing. Just might have to give that a try sometime.

    Thanks Megan...I picked the last of them last night...They looked so pretty on he tree I would have loved to have left some hanging on the tree...but now that the leaves are almost gone the predators were rapidly devouring them.
