New Product!

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.

How large does the maekawa grow?
Sabrina N on Mar 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It rarely grows taller than 15"; it is a naturally dwarf tree.
what is the difference between Maekawa Jiro Asian Persimmon and ICHI-KI-KEI-?
yy w on Mar 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: They are very similar and ripen at about the same time. "Itchy", as it's called, is somewhat more cold-hardy and grows to a mature height of about 5' taller than Maekawa; Maekawa Jiro is also more pest- and disease-resistant.
