Description

Standard on D. Lotus rootstock.

  • Zones: 7-9
  • Chill hours: 200
  • Harvest: October 15 - December 1
  • Looks: Medium sized fruit, deep red-orange skin with pale orange flesh.
  • Personality: A sweet, mild flavor.
  • Facts of note: Low chill hours, good choice for milder climates. Still hard when ripe, Jiro is the most popular non-astringent cultivar in California.
  • Also call the Apple Persimmon because it's so good you can eat it like an apple. Attractive tree is practically pest free and really easy to take care of, even in a lawn.
  • Pollination: Self-fruitful.

There are two types of persimmon fruit: astringent and non-astringent. The acorn shaped Hachiya is an example of the astringent type and must be eaten when it is soft or else it is far from tasty. The non-astringent type, like Fuyu, can be eaten when they are still firm because they do not contain the high levels of tannic acid the astringent types do. Beautiful tree in late fall when fruit hangs on trees after leaves have fallen. Striking, dark green leaves turn shades of yellow, orange, and red. The trees are two years old and should begin fruiting in their 3rd year. Be careful not to overwater the tree or it could delay its leafing out. On standard rootstock (D. lotus seedling). By pruning you can keep your tree at any height.

Check out our Fruit Tree Harvest Chart to plan for successive harvests.

Please Note: Although most of our bare-root trees arrive to our warehouse in mid-December, there are a few varieties -- Mulberry, Persimmon, Quince, and Walnut -- that will not arrive until mid-January. If you order any of those varieties along with varieties that arrive in mid-December, your order will be delayed for shipment until mid-January. If you'd like us to split your shipments, please contact us at (800) 784-1722 or orderdesk@groworganic.com. Additional shipping charges will apply.

Planting & Care

When planting Persimmons, it is important to remember that persimmons are not water loving plants. After the tree is planted it should be watered in with a good soaking to remove air pockets in the soil and then left alone. The plant shouldn’t be watered again until the buds start to break. Excessive watering is the primary cause of failure in bare root Persimmons. They will benefit from periodic wetting of the trunk, however, to help against desiccation.

Guarantee

Limited Guarantee for Dormant Trees & Plants

Please Note: Our trees will come to you topped off at approx. 3 ft in height to put the tree’s stored energy first into root development vs. foliage production.

What We Guarantee

What we guarantee, and our only guarantee, is that your dormant tree/plant will arrive in viable condition and will leaf out by May 15th. Historically, 98% of our trees & plants do. If your tree/plant leafs out and then dies, it is no longer covered by our guarantee. We only warrant to the extent of the purchase price, that the dormant tree/plant sold hereunder is as described in the catalog, website or label within recognized tolerances. No other warranty is given, expressed or implied of (1) the merchantability or fitness of the tree/plant for any particular purpose, or (2) against loss due to any cause. Our guarantee is only available to customers who have purchased their dormant trees directly from us.

What We Do NOT Guarantee

We do not guarantee your success of keeping your tree/plant alive or having your tree/plant bear fruit, as there are too many variables beyond our control to be able to do so. We cannot and will not accept any responsibility for the many growing and climatic conditions (soil preparation, planting, fertilization, weed and pest control, adequate irrigation and/or drainage, chill hours, compatible hardiness for your zone, proper choice of pollinator, etc.) that must be met to ensure the success of your tree/plant.

Deadline for Credit

Credit claims for trees/plants that arrived in unviable condition must be received within 3 days of delivery. Claims of this nature that are received more than 3 days from delivery will be automatically denied.

Credit claims for trees/plants that did not leaf out by May 15th must be received by June 1st (at the very latest) for consideration. Due to their tendency to bloom later, persimmon trees have a deadline of June 15th. Claims of this nature received after the June 1st deadline (or June 15th for persimmon trees) will automatically be denied.

How to Request a Credit

If your dormant tree/plant arrives in unviable condition, you must contact us within 3 days of delivery to receive a refund or exchange (if available).

If your tree/plant does not leaf out by May 15th, please contact us as soon as possible (before June 1st) by email (helpdesk@groworganic.com) or phone (800-784-1722). We will issue you a one-time credit (not a refund) for the price you paid for that tree/plant (excluding shipping). This credit is redeemable toward the purchase of any other dormant tree/plant of your choosing the following season.

We reserve the right to not issue credit for items purchased with credit. We also reserve the right to require you to perform a scratch test, and/or to provide photographic evidence of the condition of your tree/plant. The scratch test consists of checking for green under the bark a few inches over the graft (please watch our video titled Bare Root (Dormant) Warranty for more information on this simple procedure). If the scratch test reveals a brown cambium, the tree/plant is dead or dying. If we require photographic evidence of the condition of your tree/plant, we will need photographs of the entire tree/plant (including the roots). Please email these photographs to helpdesk@groworganic.com. We reserve the right to deny your claim for credit if we determine, from your photographs, that there is damage to the tree/plant due to rodents, root rot, mechanical equipment, or any other source beyond our control.
