The (Other) Persimmon (at Anthem Farmers Market)

In&Out Staff Writers — In addition to being the namesake of an Anthem Country Club golf course, persimmon is a sweet and soft tomato-shaped fruit. We found some amid the fresh fruits and vegetables at Anthem Farmers Market and couldn’t resist sharing. Persimmon texture and flavor are somewhere between a pear and a mango. They’re ripe when slightly soft, and fortuitously packed with fiber, antioxidants, vitamin A, manganese and other nutrients.
