Maekawa Jiro Asian Persimmon

This item is out of stock.

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

Description

A uniquely cold-hardy tropical tree. Large, seedless persimmons have a conical shape, and are firm and crunchy, with the sweet taste of fresh sugar cane. The time to pick is when the fruit turns orange and the flesh is still firm, like an apple. A perennial taste-test winner! The naturally-dwarf size (rarely taller than 15’) makes fruit-picking easy. Excellent pest- and disease-resistance. This tree will also suffer heat, drought and humidity without flinching. Ripens approximately one week earlier than Ichi-Ki-Kei Jiro, in September. Grafted. Self-pollinating, but will produce more/larger fruit with a Jiro (Fuyu) nearby.

Size & Spacing

When your tree matures, it will be approximately 12 - 15' tall x 12 - 15' wide.

Recommended Spacing

We recommend spacing these trees 12 - 15' apart to ensure room for growth.

Pollination

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!
