Persimon® is now available in Canada and they will only be available for a couple of months. To celebrate this arrival, we are running a contest to win a trip to Valencia, Spain for two people.
Persimon® is grown in the Ribera del Xúquer Valley (Xúquer river valley) near Valencia in Spain. The fruit, which is an indigenous variety to the region, was first discovered growing in Valencia more than 50 years ago and is thought to have developed naturally from the conventional persimmon varieties that were introduced into eastern Spain
Persimon® is certified and protected by the Denomination of Origin designation. This quality seal is the only one existing in the world for a persimmon fruit variety and is recognized by the European Union.
The Regulatory Council administers a strict and efficient control system to ensure the persimmons from this region are grown to the highest possible standards, and that all its grower members comply with international food safety regulations.
