Persimmons in a salad... Do they need to be peeled

I bought some Fuyu persimmons to put in a spinach salad. Should I peel them or can I put them in the salad with the skins on?

        Thanks! Should I peel them like a tomato?

      2. I disagree. I like the crispness. I have never peeled a Fuyu persimmon. They are more attractive too.

        Here's my favorite recipe for a persimmon salad from Tante Marie's which does not say to peel.

        1. I never peel them. But I don't peel apples either for a salad.
