Persimmons - fast selling

PERSIMMONS are the fastest-selling exotic fruit in Britain. Sales of the fruit overtook kiwi, mangos and avocados in the build up to Christmas and more than four million persimmons were sold in British supermarkets in 2012.

The growth is believed to be largely down to its health benefits.  They are rich in vitamins A and C and have twice as much fibre per 100g than an apple.  Nothing is wasted; the whole fruit can be eaten, including the skin.
