The most popular persimmon in Japan, Fuyu bears fruit that are large, reddish-orange with a flat shape. Being non-astringent, the sweet flavor and smooth texture can be enjoyed even before it is fully ripe. It will bear at a young age, and is a heavy producer so fruit thinning is usually necessary to ensure large fruit.
Ripens in November. Zones 8-11SOLD OUT
A beautiful tree in its own right, Asian persimmons bear a luscious sweet fruit. Being more tropical in nature, and injured or killed below 10°F, they can be successfully grown in Zones 8-11 and with protection in lower Zone 7. Because of this tenderness,
we can not guarantee these trees above Zone 8.
Plant in full sun for best blooming and ripening. A wide variety of soil types are tolerated, preferring a loam soil. Not for the impatient, these trees do not leaf out until summer temperatures reach and maintain in the 90°'s. The fruit continue to ripen and become sweeter after picking. Bears in 4-7 years.
