I am not aware. Avacados are selling for $2 a piece, and I think most of it comes from Mexico? Persimmons is not a really popular crop except for the Asian community.

I don't know of any either. Avocados are grown commercially in southern CA. I don't know of any commercial avocado growers in the Bay Area. The climate is more suited for them in southern CA. Most of ours that we buy in stores do come from Mexico though - mostly because we don't have the capacity here to feed the demand. And for persimmons - we always get them from friends who have a tree or two in their yards, but like avocados, I don't know of any commercial growers around here.

We love persimmon (and no its not just an Asian fruit).

Persimmons grow through much of California (We have had persimmon trees and a coworker brought some in from their tree this week (i.e. Santa Clara valley)

For pick your own the one I know of is in Gilroy is Andy's Orchard for pick your own.
