Sharon fruit

Did you know that Sharon fruit is related to the persimmon fruit? Unlike a persimmon, Sharon fruit is always ready to eat and has no seeds. The fruit always tastes deliciously sweet and fresh, even when the fruit is still hard.

ORIGIN

The orange-red fruit is named after the Sharon Valley in Israel. They grow on 15-metre-high trees and are grown mainly in the river valley. Our Discovered Sharon fruit comes from Israel and South Africa. 

TASTE

The flesh of Sharon fruit is orange in colour and has a juicy soft texture. In general, Sharon fruit has a sweet flavour with notes of honey and vanilla. The fruit has a fresh-sweet flavour similar to peach and apricot.  

 

USE AND PREPARATION

Often Sharon fruit is eaten fresh from the hand. You can cut the fruit into slices or cubes. The practical thing about the fruit is that you dont need to peel it. It is a versatile fruit that can be used in starters, main dishes and desserts. For example, Sharon fruit is delicious in (fruit) salads and smoothies.   

STORAGE ADVICE

You can always eat Sharon fruit, whether the fruit is hard or soft is a matter of personal taste. If the fruit is soft, it is ripe. It can also be slightly overripe, which gives it a glassy appearance. Ripe Sharon fruit can be kept in the fridge. If you prefer to eat the fruit when it is soft, you can allow the fruit, which is still hard, ripen well at room temperature. 

EXOTIC TIP

Try using Sharon fruit in a chutney or compote. You will be surprised by the addition of the fruit!
