Exploring the Rich Tradition and Versatility of Japanese Persimmons

In Japan, there are records of persimmons being consumed since the Heian period, and the sweetness of dried persimmons is said to have laid the foundation for Japanese confectionery. Additionally, persimmons have been celebrated as a symbol of autumn and are often featured in haiku poetry.

Persimmons require specific temperature conditions for growth and are only produced in some countries like China and Korea besides Japan. 'Kaki-maki,' which is dried persimmons wrapped around themselves, is still made in northern Kyushu and Okayama Prefecture. However, due to the effects of global warming, producers have decreased as it has become easier for mold to grow on persimmons dried naturally in the environment. Japanese astringent persimmons, the raw material for 'kaki-maki,' often have a stronger sweetness compared to those from other countries due to careful cultivation in orchards, making them a versatile ingredient for new sweets such as pairing well with butter or white wine. Although they may be more expensive compared to other dried fruits, they are worth tasting as a special ingredient.

I received the Yama persimmon. I enjoyed it immediately. I think they are completely different from the dried persimmons I have had in the past. They were very tasty.
