From the Heart
of
the Ribera del
X
Úquer Valley
Born in Spain and loved
the world over.
Ribera del Xúquer Valley
Home of the persiMon®
Located in Spain near Valencia, the mild Mediterranean climate of the Ribera del Xúquer Valley (Xúquer river valley) is a place of warm summers and mild winters. This is where the unique persiMon® evolved from the traditional Eastern Spain varieties – and where it still grows naturally today.
The ® in persiMon®
Certified and protected by the Protected
Designation of Origin (PDO)
PDO status:
  • The only quality seal for a persimmon fruit variety
  • Recognized by the European Union
  • Ensures growers comply with international safety regulations and meet the highest possible standards
The Roots of the persiMon®
There are over 200 varieties of *astringent and non-astringent persimmons grown around the world – but only one persiMon®. In the late 1990s, farmers from Ribera del Xúquer Valley started using natural techniques to eliminate the astringency in the Rojo Brilliante or “Bright Red” variety… which evolved into the delicious and ready-to-eat persiMon®.

*Astringency is an unpleasant, dry and bitter sensation that makes the tongue contract, which is why astringent persimmons can only be consumed after they have fully ripened.
