Prolific producer. The name translates to “seedless”. Astringent when first picked, the cone-shaped variety boasts attractive yellow to red-orange skin and nearly seedless, yellow-orange flesh. Once fully ripened on or off the tree, the pucker factor is subdued and the soft pulp-like flesh has a sweet, rich flavor – a culinary delight! The top variety for drying in its country of origin, Japan. Heat-tolerant. Ripens in September or 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.

My father and grandfather grafted Asian persimmons onto wild persimmons on our property many years ago. Time has taken it's toll and all have died except for two and they are in their final years. I have tried grafting, but have had no luck so I decided to buy two for the yard.

Which is better for drying tanenashi or hachiya? Also which is best for zone 9-10
Ed H on Oct 20, 2019

what is the best persimmon type to eat straight from the tree?
Aymon M on Mar 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: My Dad???s favorite are the Fuyu. They have a crisp bite simolar to an apple and can be eaten straight from the tree. My mom and I prefer Hachiya. I bake with them an mom eats them with a spoon. They ripen to a very soft texture. I hope this helps! Stark Bros trees are the best by far and can???t say enough about the quality of product and customer service!

Makes great persimmon pudding.
I live in NW Louisiana and my tree started producing in four years. At 9 years old it is about 15 ft. tall and producing heavily. Biggest problem is the deer can reach the lower fruits and they love them. They will actually stand up and break the lower limbs down to get to them. Hence, as the tree gets taller and bigger, I will be able to pick more fruit. Beautiful fall color of fruit and leaves. It is astringent, (puckery as we in Illinois called it), but when ripened is great to eat or make persimmon pudding or cookies out of and it has no seeds. My dog loves them. :-)

Quality products from Stark Brothers Nursery
It came as a little branch. In just a few months, it grows bigger and looks very healthy. This is its first season and started out with a handful of fruits although most fell off the tree. I don't expect having fruits until the 3rd year. Just trying to grow the tree bigger and healthier. I am definitely a fan of Stark Brothers Nursery.

Took the first year
The first year it grew leaves quickly. Deer actually came and ate the plant bare and it still regrew leaves a month later. This second year (now protected from deer) it has been really growing well. It’s a hard to find variety graft where I am and I anticipate fruit in the next two years.

Doing great
My young tree is 15 months old now and is doing great.

At this point, the tree is doing well. Because of the successive snowstorms and freezing temperatures this year, I kept it and the other trees I ordered, indoors for more than a month. They all could have been shipped more than 30 days later.
