Pick up a persimmon while doing your fall produce shopping and you won’t regret it. The supersweet fruit has a peach-like texture and slightly spicy flavor. Hachiya and Fuyu are the two types of persimmons you’re most likely to find. When ripe, heart-shaped Hachiya are jelly-like, while the squatter Fuyu stay firm. Save the wispy fronds from the chopped fennel bulb to garnish the salad.
