Persimmon orchard

An attraction to many species

Our persimmon orchard becomes point of interest during Fall, attracting those who appreciate the fruit and the birds who enjoy the sweet flavor of the persimmon.

You can observe the orchard from several strategic places in our main building, and maybe even take pictures of the many native birds that visit the orchard in the early morning or late afternoon.

Pick and enjoy the fruit at the tree

The persimmon is native from China, and was spread through Brazil by the Japanese diasporic community. It is rich in fibers, vitamins (A, C, B1 and B2), iron and calcium.

The persimmon season starts in the Fall, which is from March to June in Brazil. Here at Cantos da Mata you can pick the fruit from the tree and enjoy it here, under the trees, or take your selection home to prepare sweet and savory delicacies.

We have soft persimmon, that can either be eaten ripe or have the tannin removed before eating. Some of the local varieties are: Taubaté, Rama Forte, Giombo e Sangue de Boi. We also have some trees of the Fuyu variety, from which the fruits do not contain tannin and can be consumed immediately. When the persimmon trees bear fruit, you can also enjoy white, red and purple guavas. In May, June and July it is the season for oranges and apricots.
