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

Claim Deadline is June 1st (Claims placed after June 1st will be denied.) Please note: Our trees will come to you topped off at approximately 3 ft. in height to put the tree’s stored energy into root development vs. foliage production.

What We Guarantee
Our only guarantee is that your dormant tree/plant will arrive in good, viable condition and will leaf out by May 15th (historically 98% of our trees do). This guarantee is only available to customers who purchased their tree/plant directly from us.

What We Cannot Guarantee
We cannot guarantee that your tree/plant remains alive & healthy, or bears fruit, as there are too many variables beyond our control in order to do so (i.e. soil preparation, planting, fertilization, weed & pest control, adequate irrigation and/or drainage, chill hours, compatible hardiness for your zone, proper choice of pollinator, etc).

How to Request a Credit
If your tree/plant does not leaf out by May 15th, please contact us as soon as possible (but no later than June 1st) and we will issue you a credit (not a refund) for the purchase price of your tree/plant (excluding shipping).*

(*) We reserve the right to not issue credit for items already replaced. We also reserve the right to require photographic evidence of the condition of your tree/plant and/or a scratch test. 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.

Not sure if it will make it

I planted this tree in February. 3 months later only has two stems and they are right next to each other. I didn't notice the watering instructions on the page until now, but I have always had problems with under watering rather than overwatering, so I'd be pretty surprised if that was the issue. I wish those instructions would have been shipped with the tree.

Beautiful Tree

The tree was beautiful with a big root system. It will be exciting when it starts bearing fruit.
