How to ripen persimmons
The tannins in unripe
persimmons are thoroughly unpleasant, so it's no wonder that folklore
has arisen to teach us how to ripen the fruits. Every real
Appalachian knows that frost ripens persimmons, and some of us even go
so far as to simulate the frost. I once put a bag of persimmons
in the freezer then pulled them out a week later, hoping they would be
sweet and ripe. When I went over to visit my movie star neighbor
last week, I saw that he had laid his persimmons outside in a platter
so that a hard freeze would ripen them up. Too bad we were both
on the wrong track.
