Persimmon is a color that closely resembles the tint of a very ripe persimmon fruit (Persimmons can only be eaten if they are very ripe because otherwise the flavor is too astringent.) "Persimmon" can also be described as a medium orange-red. It is very similar to the tints of coral red and vermilion.The first recorded use of "persimmon" as a color name in English was in 1919. [ Maerz and Paul "A Dictionary of Color" New York:1930 McGraw-Hill Page 200; Color Sample of Persimmon: Page 35 Plate 6 Color Sample E12]


The word "persimmon" is derived from "putchamin", "pasiminan", or "pessamin", from Cree, an Algonquian language of the eastern United States, meaning "a dry fruit". [ Mish, Frederic C., Editor in Chief "Webster's Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary" Springfield, Massachuetts, U.S.A.:1984--Merriam-Webster Page 877]
