Native to China, these sweet, bright fruits are full of flavor and nutrients. Low in calories and high in antioxidants, they're also a godsend for digestive woes. From bloating to constipation, persimmons are high in fiber, which help calm your belly and satiate your appetite. There are two different types of persimmons, one that bears astringent fruit, or fruit that must be eaten when fully ripened and jelly-soft, and non-astringent fruit, or fruit that contains less tannins and which can be eaten when crispier in texture, like an apple.
Select fresh fruit with bright yellow or orange color. Avoid those witih bruises or surface cuts. Persimmons can also be found dried, similar to dried apricots.
