So i went to the market last saterday to get some more persimmons but they only had the large one's. I didnt mind, i thought great! bigger the better. But they take forever to ripen, i wonder if this is because my kitchen is very cold this time of year?
persimmons take ages to ripen :(
<p>I've heard something about putting them in a paper bag with a banana that is ripening as this produces the natural gas ethylate which speeds up ripening times. I know this works with papayas and avo's. Maybe give that a go. :)
great i will! thankyou :)
<p>I've just bought some beautiful large persimmons and I'm going to try it too, hope it works, don't want to wait, they are so sweet and lovely. :)
You CAN put them in the freezer for 8-10 hours and let them unthaw and they will be ripe. They are sweeter if allowed to ripen naturally, however, they are still delicious with the freezer method.
<p>I'll try that too and see how it works, thanks.
+1, you can freeze-thaw ripen them in no time.
