Description

New Product!

Nikita’s Gift Persimmon Tree is as vigorous as the American Persimmon and as large as the Asian. This hybrid was introduced by the Nikita Botanical Garden in Yalta, Ukraine. Nikita’s Gift bears crops of sweet, large, red-orange fruit, followed by vivid, orange foliage in the fall. Nikita’s Gift tastes more like Asian persimmon. These astringent fruits are typically dried or used in jams.

A lovely addition to small gardens and orchards, this second-generation persimmon tree is a hardy, small tree with upright growth. Nikita’s Gift is a self-fertile variety, great for first-time fruit growers!

Survival Guaranteed!
