Fresh hachiya persimmons

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

      You can be my BFF if you come over to my place and take about 1 or 2 or 3 hundred off my hands ...

              Indeed, add me to the list as well!

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

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

            1. Did you have personal trees or orchards? If you can't find a way to sell them, you might contact 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.

                              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!
