Kaki, Sharon, persimmon: what is the difference?
Kaki, Sharon and persimmon look confusingly similar. This leads to the assumption that they are the same fruit. Let's clear this up! All three varieties belong to the same species: the Sharon fruit, just like the persimmon, is a cultivated form of the kaki. It contains no seeds and can be eaten when hard. This makes it more suitable for the trade, because very soft fruits are difficult to store when ripe. The taste of the Sharon fruit is reminiscent of honeydew melon and peach. The kaki is more reddish in colour, the Sharon fruit is more orange-yellow and the persimmon is yellowish. You can easily tell the difference between the fruits from this. The fruits also differ in size: the persimmon is somewhat more elongated and, like the Sharon, smaller than the kaki.

Varieties & Origin
The most common variety, likely due to the fact that it is the most reliable and resistant to cold temperatures, Tipo persimmons are cultivated mainly in Italy, where they are harvested in November and December. The ripe fruits weigh up to 200 grams and their taste is full-bodied, sweet and fruity.
Persimmons are grown in ten countries around the world, with 90% of production coming from China, Japan and Korea. There they are mainly harvested in October and November. Because persimmons have a very soft flesh and are therefore hard to transport safely, the first persimmon trees were only planted in southern Europe in the 18th century.

Great snack for on the go. Really tasty. Unfortunately
Great snack for on the go. Really tasty. Unfortunately quite expensive.
Actually super tasty. Beautiful slices, super consistency.
Actually super tasty. Beautiful slices, super consistency. Only unfortunately, individual pieces leave a slightly furry taste in the mouth. Therefore 2 stars deduction.
Some pieces are tasty. Not super flavorful. Might just be that way with trimmed persimmon. Some pieces don't taste good and are astringent, so make a dry and furry mouth. They were dried unripe.
