Your Persimmons Are Ready!

The sweet legacy of Sherry and Geoff Maddock continues to bear fruit in Lexington's East End. Right now the persimmon trees planted for the community offer the best harvest since they were planted eight years ago. See locations here

Tips: The ones that fall on the ground and are intact are likely the best for eating. Ripe persimmons are deep orange, soft, and somewhat translucent. It is possible to find perfectly ripe fruit still on the tree, but be wary of any that require more than a gentle touch to release into your hand. Unripe persimmons have a justified reputation as tannic and can cause memorable mouth-puckering.
