Description

One of the finest non-astringent Asian cultivars. Large, non-puckery, firm fruit, featuring fiery orange-red color (with fall foliage to match), and a sweet, mild flavor due to the low tannins. Rich in vitamins A and C, and full of anti-oxidants. A very popular persimmon for fresh eating or in cooked dishes, both sweet and savory. The tree itself is easy to maintain, with only light annual pruning required. The wood is extremely hard and is prized amongst woodcarvers. Keeps 1-2 months in refrigeration. Ripens in mid-to-late October and is somewhat cold-hardy. Grafted. Self-pollinating, but will produce more/larger fruit with a Maekawa Jiro nearby.

My Hardiness Zone ?
The USDA hardiness zones offer a guide to varieties that will grow well in certain climates. Each zone corresponds to the minimum winter temperatures experienced in a given area. Make sure that your hardiness zone lies within the zone compatability range of this variety before ordering.

Size & Spacing

Mature Size

When your tree matures, it will be approximately 15 - 20' tall x 15 - 20' wide.

Recommended Spacing

We recommend spacing these trees 15 - 20' apart to ensure room for growth.

Pollination

This variety is self pollinating.

In many cases, you may still want to plant pollinating partners to increase the size of your crops, but with self-pollinating varieties doing so is optional. You'll get fruit with only one plant!

Purchased two Fuyu persimmons from another company. They arrived and were planted according to instructions. Nurtured all last summer but remain dead above the graft. This purchase will replace them in my orchard.

Love them
Bought one 4 years ago along with the other non astringent variety. Loaded with fruit. Incredible flavor. Not like the fruit in stores or american persimmons. Starks has always sent me great plants. I have probably spent 2 grand on fruit trees with Starks and will be buying more every year. This will be one of your favorites if you try it.
