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.

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.

Please Note: Although most of our bare-root trees arrive to our warehouse in mid-December, there are a few varieties -- Almond, Mulberry, Walnut, Persimmon, and Jujube -- 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 unless you ask us to split your shipments and agree to pay any additional shipping charges resulting from two separate shipments.
