Argentina: Increase persimmon volumes

In the 2016 Central Market of Buenos Aires (MCBA) analysis of the supply of persimmons, it was mentioned that last year there was a 26.3% increase compared to 2015. Thus, in 2016 there was an offer of 377.2 tons, compared to 298.5 in 2015. These data are contained in the Bulletin of Fruits and Vegetables of the INTA-CMCBA No. 63 Agreement sent by the Corporation of the Central Market of Buenos Aires.


Fuyu is to the right

Likewise this explains that persimmon production in Argentina has reduced and it is concentrated in San Pedro, Buenos Aires. In total, the production area reaches 190 hectares, which include other commercial productions from provinces such as Tucumán and Misiones.

Non-astringent varieties, such as Sharon and Fuyu, are the most consumed. However, it is the Fuyu variety that is found in more abundant volumes in the MCBA. It is a seedless variety with virtually no tannins, so that, even when they are green, they're not astringent, and so are able to be consumed in any state of maturation, from relatively hard to very soft, without difficulty.
