In celebration of this incredible specialty fruit, and in order to decrease the amount of persimmons that go to waste, the Portland Fruit Tree Project is partnering with local restaurants and bakeries in Portland to share in the harvest of our locally-grown persimmons!

In 2018, its first year as a pilot earned-income program, Project Persimmon partnered with 11 local food establishments, who used 525 pounds of our backyard-harvested persimmons in their recipes during the months of October and November.

See below for a list of participating restaurants, and email us if you're interested in participating this year (Fall of 2019)!

 

Thank you to our 2018 Project Persimmon Partners!
