Persimmon?

I love persimmon... they're so sweet. But they're also packed with nutrients.
They're sugary but... can parrots eat them?

I don't see why not... I never buy them because I don't like them (I am not into very sweet fruits) and because they are too expensive for all my birds but I don't see a reason why they should not eat them.

Thanks. I read that they have a bunch of vitamins and are rich in nutrients. They are indeed very sweet, though. More sweet than figs.
