Fresh hachiya persimmons

weaver1245 Nov 11, 2009 10:10 PM

I have fresh huge delicious hachiya persimmons. Haven't seen any hachiyas at farmers markets or stores--so I'm wondering what to charge to sell them. They're great for eating now, for pies and pudding, for drying--so delicious, and for freezing. Garden lady

          Super King has them currently featured in their weekly ad @ 2 pounds for 99 cents.

            FWIW, have seen them in Mar Vista Farmer's market in a couple of stands the last 2-3 weekends.

              Did you have personal trees or orchards? If you can't find a way to sell them, you might contact http://www.foodforward.org/ or your local food bank. Food Forward will come and pick them and donate them to a food bank.

              Most of the better farmer's markets have them right now. Not sure what they charge.

                Many vendors at the Calabasas farmers market (Sat. am) have had both hachiyas and fuyus for the last several weeks, generally around $2 a pound.

                  Tons of them at Hollywood Farmers Market - $1.50 was the lowest price - most were $2.00 a pound....

                          I've been drying them in my gas oven..takes up less space but takes a long time even with three racks going.

                          Would love to help you out with your glut issue. Just dug out my recipe for persimmon pie for Thanksgiving and would love to make several. Please let me know if you would like to get rid of some - in WeHo area. Thanks!!!!

                              Yes - but thanks anyway - guess I'll be heading to some farmers markets this weekend. Hope you find someone to put them to good use. Have a great Thanksgiving!

                    I saw them @ the Mitsuwa market in Costa Mesa for $0.99/lb.
