The skins are thin, similar to a tomato.

Buyers Take:

Hachiya persimmons, known as Beekeeper, are rounded, slightly elongated and acorn-shaped with a gorgeous deep orange color. An indicator of ripeness is that the fruit should feel like a water balloon when resting in your hand. When ripe the flesh is jellied in texture. The flavor is candy sweet and possesses nuances of baking spices, raisins and brown sugar.
