Seriously people. It is a fruit. It grows on a tree. You pick it and eat it. Keep some perspective.
I would really not worry about eating fruit like this if you like it. Just eat the fruit :)
persimmons are fructose bombs. My BS went to 220 after one.
they taste too sweet, I'd bet they are too high... I think they have been are breed to be sweeter.
Japanese Persimmon, raw 100 grams (@2/3 of a fruit)
- Fructose 5559 mg
- Sucrose 1540 mg (1/2 fructose)
Glucose 5439 mg
= @ 6.3 grams fructose per 100 grams of fruit, @ 10.7 grams per fruit
No breakdown on US native persimmons
Figures rounded from here: http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/fruits-and-fruit-juices/2016/2
100 grams apple has @ 6.9 grams actual fructose, so sadly, persimmons are also sugar bombs. )-;
