Small Farm on a Big Mission:

The Science of Persimmons and Better Health:
How do I know if my Fuyu persimmon is ripe and ready to eat?
California Organic Persimmons might come in a variety of sizes:
California Organic Persimmons grow on a tree in a variety of sizes. Larger and smaller persimmons all grow on the same tree side by side. Since we strive to be a sustainable orchard and not waste perfectly good organic fruit, we pick what organic persimmons are ripe on the tree at the time your order is harvested and do not sort by size.
For this reason you might receive a variety of sizes of organic persimmons in your shipment.
Some persimmons will be large, some will be small. We ensure that the fruit is ready to harvest, all the sizes are equally healthy, delicious and nutritious.
California Organic Persimmons from Zava Ranch are unwaxed and 100% unsprayed:
We do not spray or apply any kind of synthetic or chemical pesticides, fungicides, or nutrients/fertilizers.
Organic fruit is harvested and shipped on Mondays only:
Please note that we harvest and ship via 2-day Fedex priority mail only on Mondays to ensure that the freshly picked California organic persimmons get to our customers before the weekend and are not sitting on a truck or in a warehouse somewhere for two extra days.
Please place orders by Sunday night so that they get on our Monday harvest schedule. In order to minimize food waste, we harvest only what was ordered. If you place your order later in the week it will be harvested and shipped the following Monday and will arrive to your door on Wednesday or Thursday.
Why are Organic Persimmons shipped direct from California grower often not as pretty as fruit in the supermarket?
The reality is that truly organic, veganic, chemical-free and sustainably grown fruit is often not “pretty.” Because we don’t spray, wash, wax, or chemically-treat California organic persimmons to achieve specific “marketable” appearance, our organic persimmons might appear imperfect and might have visible cosmetic defects. This does not mean that fruit is bad. On the contrary, it shows that we are offering naturally-grown California organic persimmons straight from the trees in our orchard – no washing, no sorting by size, no artificial ripening!
