A persimmon, known to the ancient Greeks as "Food of the Gods". Persimmons are generally light yellow-orange to dark red-orange in color, and depending on the species, vary in size from 1.5-9 cm (0.5-4 in) diameter, and may be spherical, acorn-, or pumpkin-shaped. They are high in glucose, with a balanced protein profile, and possess various medicinal and chemical uses. Persimmons are eaten fresh or dried, raw or cooked. When eaten fresh the peel is usually cut/peeled off and the fruit is often cut into quarters or eaten whole like an apple. It can be used in cookies, cakes, puddings, salads and as a topping for breakfast cereal.
