Persimmon recipe for chutney, jam, cakes and more.

We all know fall is pumpkin season. But when the leaves on the trees turn red and golden yellow, persimmon season begins in this country as well. Often underrated, but just as delicious and healthy – for us, persimmons deserve the same hype as pumpkins. Sweet, tasty and full of vitamins and nutrients – it is not for nothing that the persimmon is also called the “fruit of the gods”. Of course, you can enjoy pure exotic fruits as a healthy snack. At Deavita, we love to experiment in the kitchen and have collected some of the tastiest persimmon recipes we’ve tried ourselves. A hearty chutney, jam or salad for a light lunch or dinner – read on and enjoy.

Is persimmon healthy?

Is persimmon healthy? The answer to that is quite simple – yes! In Asia, the exotic fruit is also said to have healing powers, and the delicious fruit is said to have an antipyretic effect and help with stomach problems. Unlike other winter fruits, persimmons have more calories, but they are a real vitamin bomb. For example, 100 grams of persimmons contain 70 calories. Also, one or two persimmons a day are enough to cover an adult’s daily vitamin A requirement. The high vitamin C content strengthens the immune system and ensures a healthy winter.
