Why does persimmon knit and how to always buy only sweet. Expert advicePictolic
November is not the richest month for seasonal fruits, but you can still find fresh vitamins at a reasonable price on the market. One of the most popular fruits of the end of autumn, without any doubt, is persimmon. This wonderful fruit can be very tasty and useful, but only if you know how to choose it. Pavel Golovatsky, deputy general Director of the Dorogomilovsky market of the capital, told AIF journalists how to do it correctly.
Autumn is the ideal time to buy persimmons, when they appear en masse in markets and supermarkets at an adequate price. Pavel Golovatsky said that in different periods of autumn, persimmons from different places of the planet get to the capital.
The first persimmon appears on the market in early September from Uzbekistan and Azerbaijan. Later, in November, fruits from Georgia and Abkhazia, and the last one gets to us is persimmon, which has ripened in the Kuban. Of course, you can buy these fruits all year round, but in this case you are almost guaranteed to get greenhouse products brought from Spain.
Greenhouse persimmon, brought from Europe, has an excellent appearance. It is always firm, large, bright and glossy. It should also be mentioned that she almost never knits.
Uzbek and Azerbaijani persimmons can be recognized by their relatively small fruits with a sharp tip. These fruits have a brighter color and are softer than their Spanish counterparts. Pressing down with your fingers such a persimmon, you can feel its juiciness.
In addition to the persimmon of the usual shape, another variety is brought from these countries — small and resembling candles. Despite the unsightly appearance, these fruits are unusually sweet and may well be tastier than their large counterparts. So lovers of nectar taste can safely recommend miniature oblong fruits.
The kinglets are most often brought to our markets from Azerbaijan or Central Asia. But you can also find a domestic product grown in the vicinity of Sochi. Our fruits from the Caucasus differ from imported ones with a flat spout.
Kings- "girls", which can be distinguished by the darkening near the nose, sometimes barely noticeably knit. But the "boys", who are recognized by the divorces in the lower part, will never let you down. Therefore, if you are looking for fruits that will not knit, choose them.
Pavel Golovatsky reminds that only immature persimmons knit, but this problem is most often fixable. To get rid of this unpleasant feature of many fruits, it is recommended to keep them in the freezer or, if it is winter, on the balcony. At a low temperature, the persimmon is saccharified and stops knitting.
Ripe persimmon fruits can be recognized by the softness and thin skin, under which the veins are visible. Fully ripe persimmons usually have dried leaves and pedicels. But when choosing the most ripe persimmon, it is important to remember that it is a very delicate product. If you do not want to bring home fruit porridge in a bag, transport the ripe persimmon as carefully as possible.
As we can see, it is quite easy to choose a delicious persimmon, unlike watermelon, which requires a more thoughtful approach when buying.
