This tropical Asian fruit not only tastes good but also carries many health benefits, and is full of fiber and antioxidants. 

Persimmon has been used for thousands of years, in many cultures. Therefore, there are several common names and nicknames for persimmons, including “Jove’s fire”, “The Fruit of the Gods”, and “Nature’s Candy”.

Persimmons are red-brown or orange fruits that grow on trees like plums and look like a small, rather a flat tomato capped by a calyx.

Persimmons are delicious and exotic fruits that do more than serve as a sweet and tasty treat; they have a wealth of health benefits packed inside them, including their ability to improve eye health, reduce signs of ageing, prevent various types of cancer, improve digestion, boost your immune system, lower cholesterol, increase your metabolism, strengthen your bones, boost cognitive function, lower blood pressure, and take care of your skin. Furthermore, they can help your body heal faster, reduce inflammation, and increase blood circulation throughout the body.

Dry Persimmon fruits also contain healthy amounts of minerals like potassium, manganese (15% of DRI), copper (12% of DRI), and phosphorus. 

The wealth of B vitamins – B1, B2, B3 as well as soluble fibres in persimmon delivers superb benefits for digestive health. While B vitamins regulate the breakdown of carbohydrates, proteins, fats for optimal metabolism and energy levels, fibres enable unobstructed bowel movements for the elimination of solid wastes from the system and avert issues of bloating, flatulence, constipation.
