fuyu persimmons imported to the states
« on: December 31, 2021, 06:02:40 PM »

While shopping last week up in San Jose/Milpitas 99 Ranch,  we saw these Fuyus for sale... these trees are all over the place in the bay area, there's 3 persimmon on inlaw's block not counting their 40+ year old tree. At least the ones sold at Costco are "locally" grown. Forgot to take a picture but the next table over had cherimoyas, $8.99/lb, but labeled  grown in California.  Brad has a better deal, even with postage, with his Cherimoyas!



Definitely fortunate when fruits can be sourced from our own or someone else's "backyard "  vs the marketplace.

Given how much transportation costs are, how much profit can they make on these imports?

I was fortunate to have someone tell me where to buy persimmons from. Turns out there is someone in CA who ships the fruit via a fruit shipping company. It cost 40 bucks for a whole box including shipping. The box was the box that they store bananas in at the store. Great deal.
