The Incredible (Inedibly Astringent) Persimmon: Know This First

Here are some facts to know about persimmons that will make you appreciate them even more. As it turns out, yes, you can die from the persimmon, one of the most lovely fruits on the planet. They’re not poisonous though. Instead, it comes down to an oddity of the tannins in their skin.

I had to dive deep into the scientific literature on this one as very little had been written about this in popular online articles. If you’re a doctor in a persimmon rich area, you probably know about this, but if you’re not, it’s all but unknown.
