Fuyu Jiro Persimmon

A completely different persimmon experience, this non-astringent variety offers a mellow, sweet flavor without the pudding like texture. Some have likened the sweetness of the crisp fruits to a cantaloupe. Extremely productive tree grows to a mature height of 20-30 feet and bears fruit at a young age. Deciduous green foliage turns brilliant orange-red in fall. Plant in full sun. Self-pollinating. Zones 7-10.

Bears at a young age and is very productive. Not only is its fruit delicious, but it also adds ornamental value to the landscape with its brilliant fall foliage in shades of orange and red. Requires less than 200 chill hours. Tolerant of heat and humidity.
