2012 Color Trend #2 Persimmon -

A orange-red color. It is similar to Pantone's Tangerine Tango but less intense, more of a year round color.

Italian: cachi
Japanese: 柿 kaki
Chinese: 柿子 (pinyin shì zi)


A persimmon is the edible fruit of a number of species of trees in the genus Diospyros in the ebony wood family (Ebenaceae).

The word Diospyros means "the fire of Zeus" in ancient Greek. As a tree, it is a perennial plant. The word persimmon is derived from putchamin, pasiminan, or pessamin, from Powhatan, an Algonquian language of the eastern United States, meaning "a dry fruit".

Persimmons are generally light yellow-orange to dark red-orange in color, and depending on the species, vary in size from 1.5 to 9 cm (0.5 to 4 in) in diameter, and may be spherical, acorn-, or pumpkin-shaped.

They are high in glucose, with a balanced protein profile, and possess various medicinal and chemical uses.
