Total acidities were incereased gradually during fermentation. Total acidities of vinegars which fermented from sweet and astringent persimmon were 5.95 and 5.81% at 8th day of acetic acid fermentation, respectively. Hunter's color values were not significant difference during alcohol fermentation and acetic acid fermentation. Browning incereased continuously during alcohol fermentation whereas browning and turbidity decreased continuously during acetic acid fermentation. The browning and turbidity of vinegar which fermented from sweet persimmon was higher than those of vinegar which fermented from astringent persimmon. The contents of total tannin were 2.40 and 6.44mg/ml at the initial fermentation of sweet and astringent persimmon respectively. But in contents decreased continuously during fermentation. Reducing and total sugar contents decreased continuously during fermentation. At 5th day of acetic acid fermentation, contents of reducing and total sugar were 5.0 and 8.5mg/ml in sweet persimmon and 2.8 and 2.9mg/ml in astringent persimmon respectively.
