You may find organic persimmons in your box this week. These are yellowy orange fruit with a sweet fragrant flesh and are grown in the South of Spain by Joaquin Pérez.
Joaquin has been farming organically for 10 years and bio-dynamically for 2 years. He also grows apricots and peaches on his farm, 60km south of Valencia, which he sells in the local area.
Persimmons are best eaten fresh, when still fairly firm. Eat them on their own or try in salads, with poultry, lamb or pork or in desserts.
Have you tried them?
