@kgoard22 6569721: We do not suggest substituting another fruit in this recipe. Persimmons have a sweetness and a deep color that gives this cake its rich flavor and color. You can find persimmons at well-stocked grocery stores, particularly in the fall and winter months, when they are in season. Hope this helps! -- Editor of RecipeLion

I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT PERSIMMIONS, IS THERE SOMETHING ELSE THAT CAN BE USED? THANKS
