November at Bella Viva Orchards: Enjoying Fall’s Bounty

Organic Persimmons

This year, seems like the transition from summer to fall happened overnight, huh? Many of you have packed your shorts and swimsuits away and have been rediscovering your cool-weather clothes. If you’ve put on that favorite old sweater already, you’ve probably noticed the cooler air, the changing colors in the trees and autumn decorations just about everywhere. And pumpkin spice. Yep. That’s just about everywhere, too.

These days, as you feel that extra nip in the air, you may be dreaming of the fall foods that make you feel cozy. You may also be dreaming of bright orange-y Persimmons and vivid green Pistachios. They are, after all, shoe-ins when it comes to some of fall’s great bounty!

Think about it. Our Hachiya Persimmons look kinda like pumpkins and have a natural warm spicy flavor courtesy of Mother Nature. You get a true fall flavor treat in every bite. What makes us like them even more is that the Persimmons we offer you are grown by our trusted neighbors. You’d probably guess that they’re nutritious, too. Many online articles such as this one tell us about the virtues of Persimmons. If you haven’t tried our prized Natural Dried Persimmons we think now’s a good time to give ‘em a try. Your taste buds will make yummy sounds and your body will thank you.

Grab a bag, tear it open and feast your eyes on their vivid color and unbelievable flavor.

We’re saying the color is so bright that it may be hard to believe they’re real. And yes, oh yes, they’re real alright! They’re great to use for snacking, as additions to many meals and for gifting. No matter what you do with them, know that experts such as those at the American Heart Association and the Mayo Clinic make them even more crave-able by telling us some of their health benefits. We think that Pistachios, especially our Roasted Salted Pistachios, are the perfect foil for the sweeter foods that are all around us during the holidays and we hope you agree!
