First introduced in our October ‘18 Bokksu, Handmade Persimmon Candy was the very first snack made exclusively for Bokksu by respected candymaker Daimonji. Established in Kyoto in the 1920s, this family-owned business has been selling expertly crafted candy for nearly a century. Their persimmon candy perfectly captures the natural, subtle sweetness and complexity of our favorite fall fruit!
Persimmon is a popular autumn fruit in Japan due to its limited seasonality. It has a sweet, rich flavor that’s almost honey-like and is unlike any other fruit. It ripens to a beautiful orange, which is intentionally reflected in this candy’s vibrant color.
