Who Knew? "One of my most important food shopping tips ever--those annoying stickers on fruits and veggies tell you A LOT! 4 numbers mean they were conventionally grown, 5 numbers starting with number 8 means they are genetically modified (GMO), and 5 numbers starting with 9 means they were organically grown (no pesticides or nasty GMOs)"
Fuyu persimmons. These can be eaten right away. They won't tie up your mouth with tannins like Hachiya persimmons. Hachiya persimmons have to become incredibly soft and squishy ripe in order to be eaten. Fuyu persimmons can be eaten like apples, skin and all. These are very addictive and I eat these like mad when they are in season.
