Number one persimmon “Fuyu kaki”

Effect of persimmon

Generally, persimmon is said to be effective in preventing colds, beautiful skin, hypertension, arteriosclerosis, cerebral infarction, myocardial infarction, cancer and hangover.
With such an effect, “the persimmon turns red and the doctor turns blue”.
I feel that it is a fruit that must be eaten during the season even if it has a healthy effect.

The main nutritional components per persimmon are vitamin C (70 mg), β-carotene equivalent (420 mcg), and potassium (170 mg) to confirm the efficacy.

The world’s persimmon production is 1st: China, 2nd: Korea, 3rd: Spain, 4th: Japan. However, the sweet persimmons you can see in Japan are rare and can be said to be unique to Japan.
