The persimmon tree is also called "the tree of peace" since only a few trees of this fruit survived after the devastating bombing of Nagasaki in Japan during WWII. Rich in sugars and beta-carotene, persimmons mature only in autumn; interestingly, the fruits are collected only when all the leaves have fallen off the tree. Persimmons must be picked when fully ripe, or soft if not squashy to the touch, otherwise a slight sensation of astringency will be caused by tannins in the flesh.

KAKI - PERSIMMONS
Few are the gelato makers that try to make a sorbet out of this fruit, and this makes the challenge even more fun because a good persimmon sorbet can only exalt the aromatic characteristics of this fruit. The richness of sugar and fiber allows us to use very little carob flour, and to obtain a soft pasty sorbet; a small addition of white cane sugar will make this sorbet a great gastronomic companion for the November and December months.
