Otow Orchard is renowned for preserving the Japanese art of hoshigaki — hoshi means dried and gaki is from kaki, the Japanese word for persimmon.
Our fresh persimmons are dried each fall in a slow, patient, hands-on process that usually takes three to six weeks…per persimmon. Each persimmon is hand-peeled, strung onto a rack, and massaged every 3 to 5 days for several weeks. Weather conditions are watched carefully. The result is a transformation into a sugary delicacy that is tender and moist with concentrated persimmon flavor.
Harvest season begins in October and the process is completed by January. Our hoshigaki can be purchased at our farmstand or shipped within the United States.
The fruit offering varies depending on the season. Stop by and see what’s fresh.
The farm stand is located between Barton Road and Auburn-Folsom Road, look for the farm stand south of Eureka Road.
Their fruit is tree-ripened and picked only when its skin has turned a beautiful orange color—for the freshest, sweetest taste possible.
