Persimmon fruit is a golden yellow, round or oval, flavorful, smooth textured delicacy.
Its sweet, delicious flesh holds several health promoting nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, and anti-oxidants that are vital for optimum health. The fruit is moderately high in calories (provides 70 calories/100g) but very low in fats. Fresh persimmons compose other anti-oxidant compounds like vitamin-A, beta-carotene, lycopene, lutein, zea-xanthin and cryptoxanthin.
Persimmons are also a very good source of vitamin-C, another powerful antioxidant. The fruit is good in many valuable B-complex vitamins such as folic acid, pyridoxine (vitamin B-6), thiamin...etc.
