This type of persimmons is not simiular to the Hachiya persimmon in consistancy. This is the kind we grow in FL. I also found recipes on the net for them from CA. This type of persimmon needs to be blanched and peeled like a tomatoe. It is then grated, sliced or diced. It the firmness and likes of an apple.
