Standard on D. Lotus rootstock.

  • Zones: 7-9
  • Chill hours: 200
  • Harvest: November 15 - December 10
  • Looks: Large, acorn-shaped fruit with deep red-orange skin and deep orange flesh.
  • Personality: Sweet, flavorful, astringent until soft-ripe. The ripe fruit feels like holding a bag of jelly and the skin is translucent. A ripe Hachiya is sweeter than Fuyu.
  • Facts of note: Low chill hours, good choice for milder climates. The mature fruit can be left out in boxes at room temperature to ripen. Whole, ripened fruit can be frozen to be used later. It can also be dried while it is still firm and it will become sweet during the dehydration process. The tree is productive and highly ornamental with beautiful glossy green foliage in the summer and red, orange, and yellow fall foliage in the fall. A mature standard sized persimmon tree can bear 330 to 660 lb of fruit in a season. Fruit requires hot summers for ripening. A good variety for drying and pickling.
  • 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.
