Persimmons are a type of fruit that can be eaten by toddlers. However, the fruit has very hard skin and it is advised to peel it before giving it to your toddler.
Can toddlers eat a persimmon?
Yes, they can eat the fruit as long as they have been peeled. The skin of the persimmon is too tough for them to chew on their own.
What Does It Mean To Test for Persimmon Tolerance?
To test for persimmon tolerance, there are a few steps that need to be followed. First, the fruit should be cut in half and the stem removed. The stem is then placed into boiling water for three minutes. After it has cooled, it is placed in a bowl of cold water for one hour.
Persimmon tolerance can then be tested by placing the stem into boiling water with sugar and vinegar added to it. It will take about five minutes for the persimmon to turn from green to orange when it has been boiled long enough.
