The first time I tried a persimmon, it was crunchy and actually a bit pale on the inside. I was not crazy about persimmon at that time, but since persimmon is one of the very few fruits available in wintertime in Germany, I had some now and then.
Two seasons passed and I stumbled across a Youtube video from some raw foodie who was eating persimmons. I almost didn’t recognise them though since the texture was so very different from the ones I was used to. It turned out, that I just have been eating them in their unripe state all the time. Who could have guessed since they were only sold this crunchy at the supermarket.
So next time I bought some, I let them sit and sit and sit till they became super soft outside, almost and sometimes literally bursting open. Then I tried them and I was blown away - so sweet and creamy just like a very delicious candy.
A whole different experience!
That actually happened to me with so many fruits - papaya, bananas, mango, pineapple or mamey sapote. I either just didn’t know the perfect state of ripeness at first or had no idea how to detect it. In case you’ve tasted a fruit before and didn’t like it, maybe you’ve just not caught it in its prime time. So give all those amazing fruits a second chance, find out how to enjoy them the best way and dive in to the juicy goodness once again!
And if you still don’t like them - well, then you got thousands of other colourful fruits to choose from.
