This large tropical fruit resembles a tomato that’s been over-doing the fake tan. The thick skin is green when young, but turns a yellowy-orange as it matures.
Inside is a juicy, sweet pulp and apple-like seeds. You can eat the skin only when it is very ripe, but otherwise it is best enjoyed peeled. Persimmon is also known as Sharon fruit.
