Hi Dr G,

I too of course love persimmon, I even managed to
force a few on my mum and she likes them too! (At 84
nearly, she is not over-keen to try new foods).

So, in October I had half a dozen trays from my
wholesaler, around 150 fruits in total. They sat in
my ripening window, slowly becoming edible over the
weeks. They were delicious at first, then the last
20-30 were unpleasant: blackish patches inside, and
worse still, some that looked good but contained
repulsive hardened jelly-like parts toward the centre;
undetectable til in the mouth.
I was left wondering if it was just a bad tray, or if
I had kept them too long, and this was their response
to not ripening in the now chilly UK weather.

Do you have as special system for ripening them in
weather like this?

Thank you in advance.
