how tall is the tree?
jerry on May 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Jerry,
As shipped from Starks, the tree was about 20 inches tall when planted. It is leafing out now and looks great. I expect it will mature at about 15 feet like my other persimmons.

Love the Fuyu
Love this tree, virtually pest free, delicious fruit, I freeze them for my smoothies. I have a high demand for the fruit with some of our Bay County Master Gardeners, also the local Publix grocery store sell them for around $4 a pound in season, I have a mature 5 year old tree that produces very well every season, planted another tree 3 years ago and it will priduce this year, my one year old tree is doing well and will produce in a couple years

Fuyu Asian Persimmon is best in the world.
I have five Fuyu Asian Persimmon trees in my garden all from stark Bro's, and continue to purchase every year for the past 7 years to give as gifts for friends. Each of my trees produces about 200 fruits, and the quality of the fruit is just out of sight--sweet, and absolutely delightful. I consider the Fuyu Asian Persimmon to be the best gift for anyone woman.

I can't wait to eat.
I do love Fuyu-gaki (Fuyu Persimmon).
Deer loves stems and leaves too. I needed deer fence.
I bought this Fuyu-gaki in Nov. 2014. So far, doing very good.
Why didn't I buy it more earlier?

Fuyu Persimmon
I purchased this plant as a gift for my son in California. So far it's been happily growing in an extra large terra cota pot for the last 2 years. I let it grow outdoor from May to November. During winter to Spring, it is kept in my garage. Hopefully, it will reward me with fruits next year.

Asian Persimmon
My tree is loaded with these Persimmons. First year was good but no fruit. This year I have about 20 of them. Water every other week. Keep covered in the desert sun and enjoy later. I sent pictures of the Asian Persimmon to all my friends on Facebook.

It's making it
my Fuju is a little skinny I think, but it's making it. I'm still trying to train it to branch out enough for fruit. This year no fruit for me because I plugged all the flowers off. There were just a few (maybe 5-6 flowers), but that's seems good for a pinky size tree. it's surviving, I'm happy. can't wait to get fruit maybe next year. a few? 5? just happy that it grows for now
