How can I ripen persimmons?

 

Q. How to get persimmons bought in grocery store to get soft and ready to eat.

 

A. Persimmons will ripen and soften at room temperature or by wrapping the fruit in paper or a paper bag will increase the concentration of ethylene gas to enhance the ripening time. Once ripe, store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
