Fruits and vegetables begin to deteriorate after they are harvested and separated from their growing environment. The rate of deterioration defines how long they will be acceptable for consumption. This is known as “shelf life.” To preserve the quality of fruits and vegetables and maximize profits for growers, it is critical to control the temperature of fresh produce and minimize the amount of time that products are exposed to detrimental temperatures.

Interest in oriental persimmon production has increased in recent years from both homeowners and commercial producers. Nursery stock of astringent and nonastringent varieties are readily available. The large shiny green leaves make the tree valuable in the landscape as an ornamental. Trees grow and fruit best in central and north Florida. Astringent varieties grow best in south Florida. See Miller, E. P and T. Crocker (1991, Oriental persimmons in Florida, SS-FRC-003) for information on the culture and management of persimmons.
