If you like peaches, try persimmons.

Why they're so good for you
Two small persimmons supply 19 percent of your recommended dietary allowance for vitamin A—almost five times more than a peach—plus six grams of fiber. Two in season now: Hachiya, which resembles an acorn, and the tomato-shaped Fuyu.

How to enjoy
When Fuyus are starting to ripen, they'll be sweetly tart and crisp, says Swift. You can snack on them straight or slice them into wedges, dollop with goat cheese and wrap in prosciutto. Or sauté them and arrange over arugula with a handful of pecans.
