Geneva Long is unusual because its fruit looks and tastes like a semioriental
persimmon. It is the only native persimmon that can be
recommended for fruit stand sales because it retains texture after ripe for
about a week. Even yellow-green, Geneva Long has a not-too-astringent a
fruit. It is mid October ripening. The fruit retains texture so it can be sectioned like a tomato to be put in a salad/desert. Is the
most commercial, completing the sea-son large, firm, ripe; the best at ripening in-doors. All benefit from days after-ripening
indoors. Ripens off the tree, so clip stems, and store in egg cartons.
