Microclimatic location of the Brda region is very favourable for persimmon cultivation. Production without spraying, the rich vitamin structure and excellent, exotic taste is what gives it major advantages for which more and more gourmets and healthy food lovers are inquiring. It is distinguished by its rich vitamin, and mineral contents, high dietary fibre components and low fat and protein content.

Harvesting begins when the fruit is coloured yellow around the stalk. Fruits harvested too early do not reach the intense orange colour and full flavour.

It is advisable to consume it fresh since it loses its vitamin value during any processing. Fresh persimmon can be bought from the end of October to the beginning of January. Outside this season it can be bought dry but it is still very juicy and full of flavour.
