 Why Do We Need to Eat Persimmons?

Persimmons’ Latin name is diaspyros, which means “The Food of the Gods.” The nutritional value of persimmons in many ways is higher than that of apples. According to USDA 1:

  • Two persimmons cover your daily needs in Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and Manganese;
  • Four fruits provide your daily needs for fiber;
  • Six fruits cover your daily requirements for Magnesium, Potassium, and Copper
  • Persimmons are rich in many valuable B-complex vitamins and a variety of valuable phyto-nutrients.


Yet, most people never buy persimmons. I invite you to try this amazingly delicious and nutritious fruit today. The season is now! Here are two of my favorite persimmon recipes for you to try.
