Miami-based Fru-Veg Marketing, Inc., will receive a shipment of Spanish persimmons to be available mid-November through December.
The Spanish persimmons are exported through Spain’s Anecoop, which markets fruit, vegetables and leafy greens to North America. The persimmons will be marketed under the Bouquet brand, according to a news release.
Fru-Veg Marketing’s persimmons will be of the Rojo Briallante variety and will be available in various counts and sizes, according to Larry Litrenta, vice president of sales and logistics.
High in vitamin A and fiber, the Spanish persimmon features a sweet, seedless taste that can be used in a variety of ways.
