Sweet, delicious Persimmon fruits look like an orange tomato. If eaten before it ripens, it has a very bitter taste. The Japanese persimmon has become the dominant variety sold in the U.S. but it did not originate in Japan. It is a native of China and was later introduced in Japan. There are hundreds of varieties of Persimmon but only two are commercially available.
