The summer season is over, the autumn and then the winter season opens. So also our diet changes, because we will tend to prefer foods of the current season. But in addition to choosing seasonal foods, we also choose foods that are good for health. So here’s an injection of cardiovascular wellness and health with this fall season food. This fruit we can replace it with the previous foods that we usually eat during the summer.
Persimmons are the must-eat autumn fruit
Persimmons are fruits that originally come from China. Over the years, they made their way to the Korean Peninsula and Japan, before reaching California in the mid-nineteenth century. Today they are a fruit that is easily found in supermarkets.
Persimmons are very good for our immune system. They are full of vitamins (such as K, C, E and A) and are rich in potassium, phosphorus, magnesium and calcium. Persimmons seem to have many properties, for example the natural fibers present are excellent for the intestine, some molecules protect cells from aging and disease.

In addition to all of the aforementioned benefits, persimmons are also great for cardiovascular health. As also reported in a study published in “Food Chemistry”. For this reason, in fact, it is good to eat them during the autumn period. They are little consumed fruits, but they are really delicious and they are also good for our body. So why not enjoy them. However, since persimmons may be associated with a reduction in blood pressure, it is best not to eat them if you are taking antihypertensive drugs.
The period of the persimmon harvest
So let’s see what is the right time to eat these fruits and if someone grows them when to pick them. Therefore the persimmon season opens in October and ends in December. From mid-October you can start with the fruit harvest, then there are variables that are given by the type of fruit and the climate.
There are two main varieties of persimmons which are the astringent ones and the non astringent ones. The former are rich in tannins and keep well in the fridge for several months. The latter, on the other hand, which contain less tannins, do not keep long after ripening. So now that we have a good understanding of the properties of persimmons, what is the best time to eat them and how to store them, we just have to eat them.
