Supplies are limited so make sure you don't miss out next time by having us automatically notify you when it becomes available again.


Also called Fuyugaki persimmon

The most widely grown persimmon tree. Bears young and yields large crops. The name translates to “winter persimmon”. Slightly drooping branches provide an elegant look in the landscape. Deep-orange fruit is medium-sized and oblate in shape, with a consistently sweet taste. Stays firm even when ripe. Keeps well for several weeks. Non-astringent. Seedless. Heat-tolerant. Ripens in September to October. Grafted. Self-pollinating.
Note: Our persimmon trees are grown in EZ Start® pots, which allow the roots to self-air prune and redirect energy to producing a dense mass of feeder roots. The main tap root will begin forming once planted in its permanent location, and will fully develop over the next 2-3 years.

Is there a dwarf type of Fuyu?
Marilyn G on Jul 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The Ichi-Ki-Kei-Jiro Asian Persimmon tree bears a non-astringent fruit similar to a Fuyu and it is a dwarf-size tree.
What is the coldest temperature this tree can endure? I am in zone 7, and sometimes temps can drop into the single digits.
JLR TN on Apr 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You'd be better off with a Yates: // It is both cold-hardy AND heat-tolerant and can take a lot of weather abuse.
My Fuyu tree has at last flowered but seems to bear only female flowers. Should it also produce male flowers? There are no other persimmon trees in the vicinity. Could I still get fruit?
Ken M on Jan 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Fuyu persimmons are self pollinating, no other tree is needed, mine started bearing fruit when the tree was 3 years old, if your tree is younger than that give it some more time. Incidentally some oriental persimmons do not flower every year I have another variety, that is the soft kind when they are ripe and it has skipped a year on occasion, don't know why, but the following year it was loaded to the point of breaking branches, this was the pear shaped variety. Environmental conditions also affect fruit set, and the tree will naturally shed green fruit if it feels it can't support all the fruit.
Hi! I bought a Fuyu persimmon tree late last year, its in a big container. Regrew the leaves during spring but lost all of it in summer, will the leaves re-grow?
Afroze M on Jul 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: How long has it been in a container? It does better in the ground, it's not normal for it to lose all its leaves during the growing season, some reasons could be insects such as aphids,, otherwise it may have gotten a virus blight disease, were the leaves curled and gnarly looking? To check if the tree is still alive, prune off a small twig and see if there is still a green cambium under the bark, if there is, the tree is still alive and should releaf, if it's all brown, that's a good indication the tree may be dying

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.

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

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.

Fuyu Persimmon. Forget all you think know about persimmons.
We love the Fuyu Persimmon. No bug or disease problems, but needs protection from squirrels. We grow in Central Arkansas. The fruit are delicious with an apple like texture.

Fuyu Asian Persimmon
I didn't have much success in getting the Fuyu Persimmon to come through the winter of 2015. The tree died down below the grafting

First impressions are sometimes wrong.
When it arrived I admit I was a little sceptical. It was a twig with a support stick and I had very little confidence it would amount to much. I half heartedly planted it as per the instructions and left it to do its thing. I was pleasantly surprised to look in on it later, and see that it had grown considerably, all leafed out and quite healthy, and without much of any attention! Then came two perfect, beautiful, little blooms. Right behind those came two perfect, beautiful little fruits. I probably should have nipped them, but I didn't. I was too impressed and love to showit off now. I only planted the thing this spring! I am looking forward to many years of delicious persimmons with this marvelous little tree! I'm pretty confident now that this was good choice and I plan on buying more for friends and family.

It is surviving but I have not seen any persimmons. Your plants are great and you are a great company.

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.
