My SIL from the UK is in town. Yesterday she went grocery shopping and got us some Japanese chocolate persimmons, one of the finest persimmons around. At RM28 each, it's our first time trying these elusive persimmons.
Chocolate persimmons have a very sweet and sugary flavor with subtle spice-filled undertones. The fruits are named “chocolate” for their brown, variegated flesh, not for their taste.
Aside from the color of the flesh, chocolate persimmons taste very much similar to regular persimmons with orange and yellow flesh.
