Persimmon – hachiya (organic) 1kg
The Hachiya Persimmon is an astringent, sweet fruit.
Ripe Hachiya persimmons have a very soft, delicate, and squishy feel, similar in consistency to a water balloon when squeezed. The ripe fruits also contain a sweet, honeyed flavor with subtle nuances of brown sugar, cinnamon, mango, and apricot.
You can ripen persimmons at home by placing them in a paper bag with a banana or an apple to expose the fruit to ethylene fumes. They should take three to six days to fully ripen, and once ripe they must be eaten immediately. 1kg = approx 5 persimmons

Seven Acres Farm
“Welcome to the rolling hills of Seven Acres Farm, which is also home to several chooks, goats and sheep, plus some very noisy geese …these are all much loved rescued animals. Our seven acres have many fruit trees, including stone fruit, nuts, heritage apple trees and many other wonderful varieties.
We value the use of renewable resources, conservation of energy, soil and water resources and the maintenance of environmental quality.
The production cycle is as closed as possible with careful use of external inputs. We grow an abundance of healthy food without the use of artificial fertilisers or synthetic chemicals.
When we purchased our seven acres of land, back in 2003, it was nothing but dust, dirt and weeds…not even a tree to be seen….what a transformation, after slowly nurturing and building up the humus/ soil, planting so many native trees and shrubs, we now have an abundance of bees, frogs, birds and other native animals, living in harmony with our small farm.
We have enjoyed our fresh seasonal organic fruit and vegetables for many years and now we enjoy sharing it with you. ”
We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of country throughout Australia and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture.
We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.
