Got a pretty good harvest from my little tree this year. They get too sweet and too mushy fully ripe. The only way I’ve found that I like them is picked a little early and dehydrated. They make great trail mix with peanuts. Does anyone else have this variety or have other ideas on how to use them?

They look pretty good. Sometimes no seeds, but I haven’t cut them yet. I’m trying to send pictures, but they aren’t uploading for some reason. I’ll try again later.

So far all I’ve had are foraged persimmons, but that’s one cultivar I want to grow. I like freezing pulp to make bread/cake.
